The  band’s name refers to the supercontinent, which will possibly arise in   some million years: at that stage all of today's continents will melt  into a single entity and all territorial borders will be overcome. If humanity should still exist in this distant future, this music would be it's soundtrack. The  compositions use authentic material which have been collected during  musical travels in Africa, India and Latin America. The band gathers the  most outstanding musicians of Cologne's jazz- and worldmusic-scene.  Pangea Ultima’s debut album was called A delightfull redefinition of cross-cultural music“ by the magazine „Jazzthing“. Since 2017 it has played several club gigs and Festivals around Germany.

"Pangea Ultima is Mexican latin jazz to unite the world..." (Indie Rocks Magazine)

"Pangea Ultima means the encounter with the known to be  known. Encounters of crossroads, times and cultures, from European jazz  to the happy result of travels through the lands where the sun hits,  that warm sun that lulls the coasts of Africa and of the Cuban Yambú". (Marvin Magazine)

"They pay tribute to musical diversity". (Reforma Newspaper)

"The songs have an inclination to joy and life, a  contrast that is important in Mexican culture and that with Pangea  Ultima generate the sonorous image of diverse cultures celebrating  life". (Reporte Indigo Newspaper)

"Camino a Mictlán, a musical exploration of the Mexican  tradition in the face of death and the celebration of life... Pangea  Ultima is a band with influences of jazz, blues, African songs and  European harmonies, which unite cultures through a universal musical  journey, an attribute that gives meaning to the name of the group  defined as an intercultural bet". (Querétaro Newspaper)

"Chema put together a kind of United Nations Assembly of  music, the multicultural integration that had taken shape three years  earlier burst with force in the album Camino a Mictlán". (El Financiero)

"The cultural variety and therefore the variety of  languages of the material produces in the listener very diverse sonic  and sensorial experiences. As in any suite, each theme is a complete  individual story and the whole is a great narration that, in the case of  Camino a Mictlán is an epic". (Formato 7)

"Camino a Mictlán will be an album that broke stigmas and styles. Its basis is to create a concept that music is universal." (Polifonia Red)

"Pangea Ultima mixes various styles, elements and  cultures in one place. Camino a Mictlán manages to include all these  elements to perfection, thus making it a pleasant journey through the  world in true jazz style". (Endorfina Cultural)
