HIHEAL was born in the aftermath of one of the most destructive natural disasters that has faced the island of Puerto Rico, Hurricane Maria. The apocalyptic devastation that took place, plus the struggle of living without basic commodities like electricity, water, and food rationing for three months, fueled ALEXA's creative essence, taking her to a very vulnerable and contemplative place.
Hurricane Maria meant the destruction of everything that was conceived as secure, inmutable. The only thing that remained was her inner world, where she found strength to create this work, a tool to make peace with her deepest fears.
The music that came through is powerful, dark, deep and raw, with a hint of analog synths, modern electro-latin beats and "jíbaro" textures. HIHEAL is on a space uniquely its own as it is heavily influenced on rock, funk, atmospheric and electronic music, but rooted in Puerto Rican musical heritage at the same time. Therefore, HIHEAL music is deliberately out of genre.
ALEXA is joined by drummer TONY ESCAPA and bassist BRYAN PEREZ.
