Latin rock foursome Bay of Pigs got involved in the U.S. scene in the 1990s, performing in a heavy metal meets Afro-Cuban style. The band's name represents the failed attempt to take over Cuba when exiles landed in the Bay of Pigs (Playa Girón) in 1961. In order to get immersed in the Central America reality, the group participated in a cultural exchange tour to El Salvador in 1997. After getting a song included in a compilation called Los Punkeros, issued by Aztlan Records, Bay of Pigs' self-titled debut album was released by New York-based Lowco Records.
