Are Red and Rojo REALLY the same?!

Well, red means "rojo" in Spanish, but when it comes to music, they're NOT the same! To answer an Air 1 listener's question, Red and Rojo are both Christian bands, but they are very different!

Red is an alternative christian metal band from Nashville, TN.




Rojo is a christian pop/worship group from Mexico!

Yes they are different since one is worship and softer sound. Red is metal. Another big difference is that Rojo has a female and she is the lead singer. Also her husband is in the band and is also the lead vocals and plays the guitar of the bass. I life both bands, actually Rojo is the only spanish band that I like.

Fernando, Thank for the vid. I like it and is that from their new album? My brother has most of their albums but I haven't seen that one in his collection.

Thanks, Edwin, that's cool! Smile

And yes, the video that Fernando posted is the new song "Tu amor hace eco en todo mi universo" (your love echoes in my universe) from the new Rojo album "Apasionado por ti" (passionate for you).

And Craig, Yeah, RED Rocks!!

LOL ok so I might be the ONLY one to notice or even care but Rojo is not from Mexico although they tour there. Hey Coppelia they are from the US I met the female vocalist family and i am pretty sure they are originally from here! xD Even in their Myspace it says they are originally from Texas......

Rojo is metal?

Hey Edwin,

Yes that vid is from their new album...and it's awesome. I can't stop hering it.  They translated David Crowder's "Oh Praise Him." The whole album is amazing.
Issac, I have to agree with you, they are from the US. Linda ( female vocalist) is from Arizona and most of her siblings (12 of them) sing.  Emanuel might be from Mexico but they now live in Texas.

Hi Isaac,

When I first heard of Rojo, I lived in Puerto Rico, and they were introduced as a band from Mexico. Emmanuel Espinosa actually founded the band, back in the year 2000, in Hermosillo, Mexico.

By 2001, they were making appearances in Los Angeles, CA and launching albums!

You can read Rojo's official biography on the band's label website, ReyVol Records.

im back, i just watched the vid Fernando posted and it is really cool, ive never heard anything like it before! the only thing i didn't like about it is, I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY'RE SAYING!! but that's ok i like them anyway. the lead singers voice makes her sound like she is really young, its nice.

I have to agree "gasolina" is one of my favorite songs but the one that I like the most is "Desde el Amanecer" I like the intro
