After a stint in Latin America as a young man, Roy Paci, who was born in Sicily, Italy, became one of the most in-demand trumpeters on Europe’s global music scene. He's since toured with Manu Chao, Zap Mama, and Golgol Bordello. He formed his own band, Roy Paci & Aretuska, in 2002, which combines Manu Chao's winning formula of pan-Latin party music with reggae and a decidedly cinematic, Ennio Morricone-flavored twist. This track, sung in Portuguese and Spanish and featuring Manu Chao, begins with funked-up bullfighter fanfare and eventually evolves into feel-good globalista pop.
