Biography

from myspace:
“Subsistencia are an Indigenous Tribal political punk band from Los Angeles. Subsistencia was born out of the frustration and the realization of our oppression as a people with a history stemming over 500 years. Rooted in the anarcho-punk scene, the band consciously began to develop a deeper desire to understand and educate ourselves in our culture, our history and our freedom as an indigenous people of this continent. We believe we have suffered social degredation, political oppression and economic exploitation. Part of our mission as a collective of musicians is to be able to create a space where the ideas to combat the enemy on these three levels is possible. We believe through education and the unity of our nation we can truly defeat the enemy, that not only steals our land and imprisons our warriors, but the world in general. Subsistencia is the word for subsistence in Spanish. We believe that is what our people have done for the last 5 centuries. Our time of subsistence must pass and be born into a time of life and growth. Part of our message is the genetic memory that we carry as a people, and we include in our music the blend of pre-hispanic instruments and modern day instruments. The message of our music is that unity, history, culture, spirituality and the personal revolution. Our collective began few years ago and we continue to grow and learn more.
