La Gente is a Bay Area-based international recording group led by singer-songwriter Rafael Bustamante Sarria. The group has created their own unique multilingual blend of reggae, cumbia, hip-hop, salsa, rock, and world music. They perform a high-energy dance party and have cultivated a large, loyal, and diverse following. They have independently released three studio albums, numerous live recordings, and two DVDs and are currently in production, collaborating with a variety of international recording artists, to release their fourth studio album.

La Gente was founded in 2002 and have performed at numerous festivals, universities, radio stations, museums, art galleries, and major venues all over the United States. La Gente has also performed in Spain, Italy, France, Great Britian, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, and Nicaragua.
