Biography

Sergi left Barcelona very young, to return after strolling around from the east to the west looking for some sense in this theatre of dreams. When back, he melt with the flourishing fusion scene (here called “mestiza”) of the late nineties founding escaramush, a band playing rumba-reggae-pachanga, so crowded as tumultuous and ephemeral, but that without any doubt got a faithful audience. He changed band at the change of millenium, to put with samsara strong guitars and electronic rhythms under his characteristic combat lyrics against the world system. After a brief step backwards to catch impulse in martingala (contributing to set up this band playing fusion of rumba and cumbia, founded on Dusminguet's ashes), and after having invested a couple of years to consolidate the solidarity projects of the Association DJs contra la Fam (DJs against hunger), he faces now with Karma Express what is his definitive bet for opening an own gap in the musical scene of the city.

Frankie is one of the mercenary guitars most requested in town. He came from Venezuela with stuff for assembling solid projects. Embarked with Sergi's gang in samsara, he left the band to co-produce the second album of mürfila and to prepare her band for the corresponding live tour. After this experience he became a basic element for different bands of the bastard Barcelona scene (el kapel, martingala) at the same time he relaxes every Sunday in his weekly jam sessions playing bossa-nova and samba.

Jim came also from Venezuela, but he arrived with his own ongoing project, taking care of the sound and scratches for somaraza. In house he left the drums he was beating from he was fifteen. In Barcelona he has been always linked to the machines, it was on stage, as sound technician for live sets and clubs, or as recording engineer in his studio.

Puli, before doing it in Karma Express, played drums with trimelón, the first successful project of the “hell bass-drum little boy” (muchachito bombo inferno). But for him live sets are the bread of every day, since he lives, enjoys and takes part in the jam sessions of the Harlem Club, where he spent a big part of his life.
