Carlos de Nicaragua y Familia Short Info

Carlos de Nicaragua y Familia

Carlos de Nicaragua is the musical pioneer of a sound salsa reggae. It’s an energetic, positive sound that fuses salsa, reggae, rock, jazz, funk, rap, and more, and mixes it all with a message and a higher purpose that speaks to the world’s need to understand each other. Born on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua in Bluefields, Carlos Wiltshire naturally received the influences of salsa and reggae music. As he grew up, Carlos developed a passion for poetry, photography, cinema and philosophy; and composing music became an expression of his roots and a means of expressing himself to the rest of the world: “Music,” as Carlos says, “will make dance the dictator, the rich, the poor, the pope included. It is the language we need to understand each other.” Carlos settled in France and became Carlos de Nicaragua, in honor of his country of birth and its legendary pre-Columbian founder, Indian chief Nicaracao Cai. In France, Carlos was one of the early innovators of the Sound System concept in Paris, with his own Kupia Kumi Sound System (One Love Sound System). Another sound system, called Jah Wisdom, produced Carlos’ album Mayombe, of which the single of the same name is included in the Jah Wisdom-Vocals & Dub compilation. Carlos, Tonton David and Pablo Master produced those earlier works. Carlos also participated in the last album of Mano Negra (Casa Babylon), co-authoring the song “El Alakran.” Working with Manu Chao, Carlos joined Mano Negra in a Spanish tour that conquered fans from all around France and Spain with his shout, “Escuche Familia!”
