Yahuba "El Pollo" Garcia: Home

Welcome to the Official website of Yahuba "El Pollo" Garcia


The Puerto Rican (via Boston) Conga sensation has been lighting up the National music scene for the past seven years as a member of the Ryan Montbleau Band.  In the language of his Puerto Rican ancestors, The Taino, "Yahuba" means music or 'grito fuerte y sonoro' (strong musical scream). His instruments include Congas, Timbales, Bongo, Glockenspiel assorted percussion, and vocals.  As an educator, he has visited schools, speaking and performing in front of children of all ages about his Puerto Rican culture, music and heritage. As a musician, Yahuba knows no boundaries, he embraces every style of music as if it was his own, and is true to the craft of showmanship. One only needs to see the charismatic joy he delivers through his music to understand how he got his name.  Yahuba has also toured, recorded and played gigs with countless musicians (ie. Martin Sexton, Zach Deputy, Percy Hill, Michigan Blacksnake, The Boston Horns, Jen Kearney, Ron Levy and many others).
