Los Hombres Calientes
Los Hombres Calientes is more than a collective of musicians. Los Hombres Calientes is a mission--a musical, cultural and historical mission founded on and bound by the principal that we as all people are one--that all of our intricate individual ancestry leads back to one source. With each album, they excavate the planet through music, sifting through roots in their place of origin to identify and unify the common thread. In the process of disseminating all of this pertinent culture and heritage, co-leaders Bill Summers (percussion) and Irvin Mayfield (trumpet/keyboards) have also deemed it vital that listeners move as many body parts as possible. For the music of the earth in all of its complexity is, in essence, party music.
