Gutxi Bibang – System of a Gun
True story: I just had diversity training this week at the office, and it was very impactful to me. I honestly never thought of myself as biased against any group of people because of race, ethnicity, religion, etc., and then I saw an email with new music from Gutxi Bibang. What did I do?
I was about to delete the email without reading the message, or listening to the music. Why? because I did have an unconscious bias against names (or nationalities) that don’t sound like typical rockers… and Gutxi Bibang was anything but traditional. Luckily, I caught myself before I hit the Delete key because this stuff is special.
Gutxi Bibang is a second-generation African from the Basque county of Spain, but more importantly he’s a dynamic rocker just dripping with charisma. His new song “System of a Gun” is a straight-forward, balls-to-the-wall rocker that would have fit perfectly in the 70’s classic rock scene. Screaming guitar riffs and catchy lyrics make this a song that will appeal to any rock music fan.
