Biography

In 1993, while travelling in the "Selva Maya" Aldo Garcia stepped on a land mine. During an arduous evacuation to medical care Aldo experienced an awakening. From this day forward his life and music has been touched by the jungle and its spirits. Now nestled in a mango grove in the state of Veracruz, Aldo (with his irish wife Nuala and 2 daughters) near the village of Jalcomulco Aldo releases his creativity in his paintings and his music.
Apart from his mystical influences Aldo's music has been profoudly influenced by Daniel Lanois, and Brazil's Olodum and Toto La Momposino from Colombia.
What sets Aldo and his music apart is the unique blend of international instruments to make a true "world music" sound. With pre-columbian instruments and an Irish pipe Aldo's music is a unique blend of cumbia, samba, and reggae.
