about

This is a Latin track in the dancehall style. It explains the “salsamuffin” concept: Latin music with a Jamaican raggamuffin flavor and hot lyrics. The video was filmed in Bogotá and features Supa Bassie, a Spanish reggae-ragga singer.

« Yo soy salsamuffin » est une chanson latine au style dancehall, représentant le concept de salsamuffin : une musique latine, à goût de raggamuffin jamaïquain rehaussée de paroles piquantes. Le vidéo-clip s’est tourné à Bogota où j’y suis accompagné de Supa Bassie, un chanteur de reggae-ragga de la scène espagnole.

lyrics

Cumbia, ragga, dancehall con son
Sabrosa mezcla de ritmos la que trae esta canción
México, Colombia, Cuba, Jamaica en combinación
Con el Mediterráneo siendo la conexión
Up town, down town, la rumba ya empezó
De Valencia a Bogotá pasando por Guantánamo
De Monterrey hasta el DF vía el lindo Jalisco
De Santiago hasta la Habana pasando por Kingston

Abre la puerta Tomasa y apaga la televisión
Salsamuffin en la casa ragga con cumbia, y con son!

Abran paso, mi música revienta el cemento
Tu no me conoces pues yo soy el sargento
Este ritmo viene con sabor y sentimiento
Déjate llevar y verás que yo no miento
Este ritmo lleva pólvora por dentro
Dispara melodías y las clava en el centro
Esto es cierto y acierto
Cuando digo que mi música revienta el cemento

Dame un beat, dame un acordeón
Y lo que yo te formo es una revolución
Dame un mike, y dame una guitarra
Y así de sencillo te brindo una rolita extra
Yo te lo digo así nació mi música
De mi barrio el eco y la crónica
Así yo me alimento, no me importa la crítica
La calle me inspira lo demás no me la pica

Cumbia, ragga, dancehall con son
Sabrosa mezcla de ritmos la que trae esta canción
México, Colombia, Cuba, Jamaica en combinación
Con el Mediterráneo siendo la conexión

Yo soy salsamuffin vecina
Y sabes yo vivo en la esquina
Lo amargo lo convierto en dulzura
Soy manana, soy cultura

Todo esto en nuestro barrio puedes verlo
en cada esquina
El volumen bien alto sonando por las bocinas
El DJ girando los ritmos con arte en tarima
Todo el mundo bailando y vibrando con
nuestra rima

Muffin y Muffin…y raggamuffin
Muffin y Muffin…y cumbiamuffin

Abre la puerta Tomasa y apaga la televisión
Salsamuffin en la casa ragga con cumbia, y con son!

Abran paso, mi música revienta el cemento
Tu no me conoces pues yo soy el sargento
Este ritmo viene con sabor y sentimiento
Déjate llevar y verás que yo no miento
Este ritmo lleva pólvora por dentro
Dispara melodías y las clava en el centro
Esto es cierto y acierto
Cuando digo que mi música revienta el cemento
_____________

Cumbia, ragga, dancehall with son
A tasty mix of rhythms carried by this song
Mexico, Colombia, Cuba, Jamaica in combination
With the Mediterranean making the connection
Uptown, downtown, the party has started
From Valencia to Bogota passing through Guantánamo
From Monterrey to the DF through beautiful Jalisco
From Santiago to Havana passing by Kingston

Cumbia, ragga, dancehall with son
Salsamuffin in the house, ragga with cumbia and son!
Make way, my music is bursting through the concrete
You don’t know me but I’m the Sergent
This rhythm comes with flavor and feeling
Let it pick you up and you’ll see I’m not lying
This rhythm has gunpowder inside
It shoots melodies and digs right to the core
This is for sure and certain
When I say that my music breaks through the concrete

Give me a beat, give me an accordion
And what I put together will be a revolution
Give me a mike, and give me a guitar
And from something so simple I’ll give you a little extra song
I’m telling you, that’s how my music was born
From my ‘hood the echo and the stories
That’s what feeds me, I don’t care about criticism
The street is what inspires me everything else doesn’t sting me

Cumbia, ragga, dancehall with son
A tasty mix of rhythms carried by this song
Mexico, Colombia, Cuba, Jamaica in combination
With the Mediterranean making the connection

I am salsamuffin, homey
And you know I live on the corner
I turn the bitter into sweet
I am the spirit of the barrio, I am culture

All of this in our neighborhood can be seen on every corner
With the volume cranked through the speakers
The DJ turning the rhythms with his turntable skills
Everyone dancing and grooving to our rhymes

Muffin and muffin…and raggamuffin
Muffin and muffin…and cumbiamuffin

Cumbia, ragga, dancehall with son
Salsamuffin in the house, ragga with cumbia and son!
Make way, my music is bursting through the concrete
You don’t know me but I’m the Sergent
This rhythm comes with flavor and feeling
Let it pick you up and you’ll see I’m not lying
This rhythm has gunpowder inside
It shoots melodies and digs right to the core
This is for sure and certain
When I say that my music breaks through the concrete
