Sergent Garcia Returns to North America this July
The vibrant Latin sounds of Sergent Garcia are returning to North America this July for an 8 city tour, including San Diego's Asi Suena Latin Rock Fest, Madison's La Fête de Marquette and Montreal's Festival Nuits D'Afrique.
Already a household name in Europe, 2011's highly celebrated Una y Otra Vez was Sergent Garcia's first album in over 5 years and solidified his legacy as a salsa-reggae superstar this side of the Atlantic. It also saw Sergent Garcia's exciting new artistic direction, collaborating with some of the hottest names in Colombia's scorching electrotropical music scene. Since the release of Una y Otra Vez, Sergent Garcia has spent a lot of time in South America and earlier this year digitally released with Cali, Colombia's Zalama Crew a "re-imagined" version of his song Mi Son Mi Friend entitled Calentura Mi Son. Both releases can be streamed & purchased at the Cumbancha Official Store.
