Sergent Garcia

Una Y Otra Vez

(Cumbancha)

Fans of Manu Chao will find Sergent Garcia’s soundworld immediately recognisable: insistently catchy reggae and salsa rhythms, truculent, sing-song rap, horn riffs propelling the whole mix. Una Y Otra Vez sees Garcia (the rank is a hat-tip to Zorro’s bumbling nemesis) travelling to Colombia for extra Latin American spice. “Yo Soy Salsamuffin”, chants guest rapper Supa Bassie, as Cumbia, ragga and dancehall swirl and meld all around him.
