“La Gente SF, led by Rafael Bustamante Sarria, plays an intoxicating cocktail of world music, mixing cumbia, reggae, salsa and hip-hop. Dance music with a political edge”
-Cy Musiker, KQED Arts

“La Gente SF reminded listeners of the depth, scope, and considerable talent of the local music scene. The band can be described, generically, as Latin fusion, aka mestiza music. Yet that description doesn’t really impart the sonic goodness and vibey aesthetic the band embodies.”
-Eric K Arnold, Oakland Local

“It’s refreshing to watch a band draw an audience as eclectic as their music. It seemed no one could sit still through the contagious beat and positive vibe.”
-Cassandra Braun, East Bay Times
