SM Familia is a collection of some of San Diego’s most seasoned musicians. They range in age from 25 to 45 and come from different backgrounds, from South America to Europe, to create a unique kind of Latin Reggae.
Their style has a variety of music flavors, such as hard roots reggae and Latin-infused bossanovas and cumbias. Felix “El Gato” brings a unique, powerful and seductive sound with smooth energy. Members also are well known in backing bands for some of Jamaica’s old-school roots singers such as Michael Palmer, Sister Nancy, Eek A Mouse and many others. With a full horn and percussion section, the band brings ambiance again and again.
