DJ Sisco
Francisco Garcia was raised around the salsa scene since birth but his love for the music did not arise until his mid 20's. He quickly became a big fan of the Salsa Dura and started to involve himself in the salsa scene. Having been raised up playing Trumpet since he was 10 years old, his ability to hear music and capture the phrases and breaks made learning to dance much easier. His first year, he started to make a collection of his own music, slowly building his library and falling in love with GUAGUANCO, SALSA DURA and GUAJIRA. These sounds have become his trademark; focusing on the early 70's sound to the late 50's. In no time, he was greatly received and gained the recognition of many Montreal Salsa Dancers, who were witnessing DJ Sisco perform for the first time. Francisco's ability to play a variety of music, and meet the needs and wants of the crowd improved greatly in Montreal. During his short time Dj'ing Francisco has already been invited to Dj at events at congress level, and having been able to spin along side some of Canada's top DJ's. His style has reached and heard all over the world.

Collaborating with GUSTO Ent. he has held his own events in Edmonton, Calgary, Niagara Falls, Montreal, and has his own monthly social based in Toronto called Mambo Fridays, soon to be expanding his socials to the United States and Europe. DJ Sisco has also been headlined at yearly events such as; SalsaGlam, and Chim Pum Callao Salsa Congress in Niagara Falls to name a few. His professionalism has been greatly respected at all events and his fans got to see his ambition and love for music at a higher level, It is something that he honors with great respect and pride. As Dj Sisco continues to mature as a Dj also his sound and selections of songs changes but always remembering to cater to his crowd first and never forget about this wonderful thing we call Salsa. Expect to hear and see DJ Sisco in many congress's in the years to come!!!
