Spanish band spreading God's message through guitars and rock music

2014-01-03

They are veterans when it comes to music.

Voz del Desierto, or the Voice of the Desert, is a group of laymen and priests from the Spanish Diocese of Alcalá. They speak about God trough rock music. The band has now released their fourth album in their ten year history. They have made rock music their venue to express the messages found within the Gospel, a way to evangelize people through this musical genre.

DANIEL
Member, Voz del Desierto
"The problem is not rock itself, but the message it gives. What we want to do, with the type of music we all like, be it pop o rock, is to use it to convey a Christian message to young people, so they can be closer to Jesus Christ.”

In their newest album, the band has taken on a more polished production. They even ventured into recording in English. The album is available for download online through the major platforms. And they don't rule out the possibility of going on tour, through fame is not their motivation.

ALEJANDRO
Member, Voz del Desierto
"If we can go on tour through South America, well great! If we can go on tour through the small towns in Alcalá, also great! In the end, we are always open to what the Lord has in store for us, because we don't seek fame. We want to evangelize.”

As John the Baptist, who preached about God in the desert, these priests use the words and music young people listen to, to spread their faith. Their commitment is so great, that even any earnings are given back to God. 

ALBERTO
Member, Voz del Desierto
"Any additional earnings, or the money they may give us for a performance or album sales, we invest it so that young people can take part in spiritual exercises, or give them scholarships to take part in different programs to allow them to be closer to the Lord.”

They are witnesses that even rock can help people be closer to God. With their album "El me vuelve a levantar” (He Helps Me Rise), the band Voz del Desierto offers a unique and complete fusion of music from the 21st Century with words written over 2,000 years ago.
