Sekta Core is without a doubt, one of the most traditional skacore representative bands from Mexico, heavily influencing the ska, punk and hardcore music scene.

Along their 22 years of trajectory, the band has headlined Los Angeles’ Skacore Invasion festival, they have performed in 5 different occasions in the Festival Vive Latino in Mexico City, Revolution Fest in Guadalajara and Puebla, the Machaca Fest in Monterrey, and most recently Festival Hell & Heaven in Mexico City. The Ska-Core pioneer band is made of vocalist Jorge Salcedo, drummer Miguel Rizo, bassist Ivan “Bam” Rubio, guitarist Axl Ãvila, trombone player Enrique “PÃ³poro” RamÃrez and trumpet player Galo Reyes.
Formed in 1996 and with a name inspired by the popular song Nana Pancha, interpreted by Pedro Infante, one of the most iconic actors and singer from the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema in the 40’s and 50’s, the band Nana Pancha have made a name for themselves in the Mexico City ska scene with one demo and 4 albums in their discography, becoming one of the most important ska bands in their country.
The band’s recent material is their energetic third single “Esqueletos Tocan A Mi Puerta” from their album “En Vivo desde El Multiforo Alicia“, coincidentally also recorded live in the Multiforo Cultural Alicia in Mexico City.
