Sergent Garcia Tours North America

Sergent Garcia may be French but you wouldn't guess it by just listening to his music. Going at it for almost twenty years now, Garcia has recorded and performed styles ranging from rock to reggae to "salamuffin" -- a genre created and self-coined by Garcia himself on his latest offering Una Y Otra Vez. What exactly is salsamuffin? Well it's a genre-bending style that infuses neo-Colombian rhythms with...well, whatever fancies Garcia.

Intrigued? Well, you should be. Read our review of Una Y Otra Vez here and hit up one of his shows this summer. We can only imagine his live shows are just as all over the place as his albums.
