How we met:
We met Reinaldo in Barcelona by the time he was performing with Batukeros de la calle (a band formed by Pierre Minetti), at La Boqueria Market near Las Ramblas. We then decided to add him to the recording of Guantanamera and Clandestino, in which he performs a vocal duet with Manu Chao.
