He buys a boat and leaves for Jamaica, New York, Brazil and Asia. Bring back sounds – to album gringo With titles like the sauce or The ghetto can’t stand – Cultural references and the reasons for dedicating oneself to them. A style of work that resonates with public openness to the world and appreciates distant musical inspiration as well as the committed texts that illustrate it.
