Daughter of singer Carlos Guerra, Peruvian Rossy War (born Rosa Guerra Morales) started singing Mexican traditional music at a very young age, mostly influenced by her father. After participating in a band called los Fender's, she moved to Lima and joined los Bio Chip's in 1984. War decided to go on her own soon after. Known as la Reina de la tecno-Cumbia (techno-Cumbia queen), Rossy War became the first local artist performing that style, a mixture of Tex-Mex and Colombian Cumbia. She made her debut album, called Como la Flor, in 1995, followed by Cositas del Amor in 1996. That album was released by Fama Records, a label founded by her husband musician Federico Alberto Mauri Almonacid.
