Censurado en Cuba video sobre Afrodescendencia  11/21/2017 Negra Cubana: "Este video fue censurado. Fue presentado a LUCAS, el programa televisivo más importante de video clips en la isla, y no pasó “el filtro”. Con ello no solo determina que no pueda presentarse en la televisión nacional, sino que también lo excluye de la competencia anual para determinar los mejores obras hechas en Cuba y/o por cubanxs. El video de El Individuo (de Con100cia) y es una producción Guampara Music para el disco AfroRazones, que pertenece a un proyecto del mismo nombre."

Cuba’s First Independent Urban Music Label Is Dedicated to Black Resistance  10/25/2017 Remezcla: "In Guampara, Havana’s sounds of resistance find a home. The studio and record label is a consistent force in unearthing ways to maintain and honor the connection with Cuba’s past and its interconnected history with Africa, while also creating content that’s relevant to today. As label manager Laura Catana puts it, “It’s about staying rooted in the past while looking forward towards the future,” a mission she pushes with label founder and owner DJ Jigüe."

Premiere: Cuban Rapper El Individuo’s “Mi Raza” Is An Ode To Blackness  8/18/2017 Vibe: "AfroRazones – a space for Afro-Cuban expression, archiving a Cuban manifestation of Black resistance in 2017 – was born last year inside DJ Jigüe’s Guampara Studios. It was nurtured by a team of Cuban and U.S.-based artists and organizers (including LPZ who produces for Cuban hip-hop luminaries, Danay Suarez and Los Aldeanos) that recognized the impending changes of the current sociopolitical transitions and diplomatic relations at play."

AfroRazones Presents: Mi Raza - El Individuo (de Con100cia)  8/6/2017 Guampara: ""Mi Raza" by El Individuo of Con100cia, Album: Afrorazones"

‘AfroRazones’ Compilation Traces the Legacy of Black Resistance From Havana to the Bronx  5/21/2017 Remezcla: "Beyond the high-level quality of AfroRazones, however, is the importance of archiving the methods of collaboration, cultural production, and the discussions that emerged throughout the process of sharing knowledges in recording sessions and workshops. In this sense, AfroRazones offers a model example of representation and cultural exchange, but also of archiving the process of building bridges between Black resistance movements. In that way, we are armed not only, as the project has described, “with the wisdom of our ancestors,” but also with the music industry tools to support Afro-Cuban artists’ continued prosperity in the digital age."

AfroRazones, el orgullo negro como bandera  4/29/2017 Jiribilla: "Así surgió AfroRazones, cuya idea original parte de la conjugación de otros dos amantes de la subcultura y del género: Luna Olavarría, mexicana-puertorriqueña, estudiante de The New School, en New York; e Isnay Rodríguez (DJ Jigüe, el hombre detrás de las máquinas en ese quinteto explosivo del jazz cubano contemporáneo que es Yissy & Bandancha), productor."

Rositik’s “Yo No Soy” Collides Timba and Hip-Hop to Celebrate Black Cuban Resistance  4/24/2017 Remezcla: "Back in the summer of 2016, a group of Cuban and U.S.-based artists got together at Guampara Studios in Havana to examine Afro-Cuban identity, creative expression, and support systems on the island. They conceived AfroRazones, a multimedia project and compilation album that proudly brandishes the sound of Afro-Cuban resistance."

El Individuo Connects Black Cuba To The World On “Mi Raza”  4/7/2017 Fader: "The very first single from the forthcoming AfroRazones mixtape sets the project's tone. "Mi Raza" is a blistering personal history from the rapper El Individuo, about what it means to be a black Cuban or, as he says, afrodescendient. It's the first of 11 more tracks on the AfroRazones hip-hop and R&B compilation project that unpack black identity in Cuba, to protect it and also boost transnational solidarity at a peculiar political moment for the slowly-opening island nation, as well as the world. With the help of DJ Jigue, AfroRazones was created last summer in Havana by Cuban and U.S.-based artists (including FADER contributor Luna Olavarría Gallegos) as the effects of diplomatic changes began to trickle down to the people."

DJ Jigüe Explores The Sound Of Afro-Cuban House With “Sigue Los Pasos”  8/4/2016 The Fader: "Electronic fusion musician DJ Jigüe is always working on something. Part of Santiago de Cuba's DJ scene since 2004, the experimental DJ and producer has traveled all over the world, presenting his many projects and collaborations to audiences from Canada to Brazil. In 2014, he founded Guámpara Music, his own independent music production company, with the goal of showcasing the ever-changing fusion of sounds borne of el barrio."

Guámpara music y el sonido del barrio  10/13/2015 On Cuba: "Guámpara music integra, desde febrero, la lista de productoras independientes en la isla que desde inicios de los 2000 constituyen una alternativa mucho más accesible para grabar y promocionar la música de artistas que se inician. Aunque también resulta más accesible para nombres reconocidos, sobre todo de géneros como rap o el reggae, por ejemplo."

A Night of Cuban and US Hip Hop in Havana  10/5/2015 Havana Times: "The speakers come alive with the music of Danay Suarez, Fifty Cent, Ruta 11, Bob Marley, Pesadilla, Michael Jackson, and people sing, dance and “groove,” as they say here. Guampara Music offers a more Caribbean rap, the band members being from Santiago de Cuba. One of them, Golpe Seko, tells us it’s “Afro-Cuban rap.” The two are also a family with a baby waiting back home in Santiago de Cuba."

Guámpara Music: Feet planted in Santiago de Cuba but eyes on the continent  6/30/2015 La Habana: "If you describe Guámpara Music as a brand-new project, you will find it’s only half the story. The truth is that the men and women in the project have been busy for over ten years working on urban music production and promotion in their hometown of Santiago de Cuba. All you have to do is listen to them for a while. Listen to them and to the music in order to be convinced that this group has more than a couple of things to say on the contemporary music scene." - Interview with Isnay Rodríguez (DJ Jigüe).

Guampara Music, nueva productora de música urbana en Cuba (+vídeo)  3/24/2015 Negra Cubana: "Guampara Music surge como un proyecto independiente y autogestionado comunitariamente, en el difícil contexto de la realidad cubana y la particularidad de la industria musical cubana. Además hay que reconocer la importancia de la música urbana en la Isla por el auge que tiene y específicamente en Santiago de Cuba, territorio por el cual entró una de sus manifestaciones más reconocidas, el Reggae, y que sin dudas ha aportado al enriquecimiento de la música cubana, sobre todo con sonoridades caribeñas y estadounidenses."

Guampara Music Presents: Sangre de Reggae - Somos (Video Oficial - Official Clip)  2/27/2015 Guampara: "Sangre de Reggae_La primera banda de Reggae de Santiago de Cuba......La fuerza del Caribe."
