Hernan „Don Camel” Sforzini is an Argentinian producer, percussionist and promoter affiliated with Estudio Afro, the Afro Records and Serious Reggae music labels. He's also an environmental activist deeply involved in the local community.
”Replace the chemical and toxic for the organic, plant and give life, hemp is a plant that can save the planet”. He has been part of local clean water initiatives with the albums he released: part of the money from sales were donated to children’s aid organisations.
His latest album is a sound clash between two of the most popular riddim bands in Jamaica: Sly & Robbie and the Roots Radics. The Final Battle is considered by the American Reggae archivist Roger Steffens the closest thing to a reggae/dub Woodstock. His vision of creating a studio sound clash between two of the most powerful rhythm sections in the world has created an historic impact and resulted with the Final Battle LP being nominated on the Best Reggae Album section at the 2020 Grammys.

“I plant trees in my neighbourhood since 2005, more than 500 trees. Sadly, all politicians only want to cut these trees; the situation is very much like in the Bob Marley song, I Shot the Sheriff: “every time I plant a seed they say kill them before it grows.””
