Flor de Loto is a Progressive Folk Metal with a long history that began in 1998 when Alonso Herrera (Lead Guitar & Vocals) and Alejandro Jarrin (Bass Guitar) met at the university and because of their similar tastes for music, they started a friendship and decided to form the band.
For 6 years, they had several presentations at the local level where they had perfected their stage presence and musical style. Little by little, over the years the lineup would change as the band was in search of their own style that combined fusion, rock, metal with progressive and Latin American folklore. In 2005, they released their debut album “Flor de Loto”. Since their debut album, the band has played some of the biggest festivals around the world including their latest visit to America where they graced the stage of the Majestic Theater in Gettysburg, PA for RoSfest (Rites of Spring Festival) 2018 which was celebrating their 15th year anniversary. The band has also received many accolades over the years. In 2018, Flor De Loto will be releasing “Eclipse”, their ninth album produced by legendary producer Roy Z Bruce Dickinson, Halford, and Judas Priest and Tribe of Gypsies
They have shared the stage with bands such as Paul D’Anno, Within Temptation, Orphaned Landa, Focus, Sonata Arctica, Tony Levin Band and Hawkwind. More recently, they have performed with the famous singer, Fabio Lione (Rhapsody, Angra) who has also recorded a song on their latest album.
