Song of the Day: Quique Neira’s “Lady”

I was just in San Francisco for a little over a week. Although I was there for some serious business, I spent the first few days in search of a good reggae club. I found two that were decent, but it wasn’t those clubs’ music that I was impressed with–it was actually the most random places that played some of my favorite reggae tunes. While walking down Mission Street, a Mexican grocery store had Los Cafres playing outside over their produce. And when I stopped to eat at El Balazo, I was greeted at the door with today’s song of the day–Quique Neira’s “Lady.” A few days into my week, I talked with some reggae heads about reggae music, only to find out that they didn’t know that Latin America has a strong reggae scene. For that reason, we’re gonna take it back to 2005 with a track from this former member of Chile’s Gondwana. It’s a lot more laid back, compared to the serious reggae roots style he brought with Gondwana, but Quique still manages to deliver one of the best voices in Latin American reggae.
