The fusion of Ska, Reggae and Funk with a very hard rock feeling brings out the unique touch that La Severa Matacera gives to its music, showing that the roots of this genres are the same so that they match perfectly. A very harmonious brass ensemble joined by a rhythm base made of powerful bass, guitar and drums grooving together contagiously is the key.
