Music is very often a response or reaction to the world around it.

It is nothing new, rock’n’roll, hip-hop, punk, rave and grunge where all in their way a response of dissatisfaction to the world in which they found themselves, a message for change or at least non-co-operation. And in a way Ignacio Peña comes from a similar place, and as the name of his forthcoming album Songs For The Fall of an Empire suggests, he may not be so much rebelling against it but he is at least documenting our times and creating its soundtrack.
