Emerging in the summer of 2004 in San Jose, CA., Maya‘s close-to-home fanbase quickly expanded to reach across the world, which led to opportunities to tour across the country and throughout Mexico and Central America alongside heavy hitters including Terror, The Acacia Strain, Emmure, and more.
These days, the band is tapping into their heritage to share their stories as first-generation Mexican and African American musicians from Northern California.
Their musical identity is fueled by DIY ethics, respect for their roots, and the determination to share the music they love with a culture that hasn’t always understood it. The band has found their distinctive voice in the fierce world of metal with their new record Despertia (Awakening) due to release Summer 2021 on Shark City Recordings.
