Sebastian Kaya Salgueiro is a reggae musician from Uruguay, who has been living in Costa Rica for 10 years. After catching one of his recent performances in Tamarindo, we reached out to him with an invitation to tell Howler readers about his background and favorite activities.

“I believe that music is the medicine of the soul, and reggae is a charged musical style of love,” he shared. “People enjoy my music because I try to transmit positivity and respect.”

Along with an album called “Wise Moments,” Sebastian has many original songs to credit, including the popular “Let Me Show You.” Dedicated to Costa Rica, it’s been played and recorded with  several of his favorite musicians from Tamarindo.

“I love this blessed land and its people,” he affirmed, “and that’s why I decided to stay here.”


As a tribute to reggae, Sebatian enjoys performing songs by artists such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Alfa Blondi and Culture.

“But what I like the most,” he told us, “is to sing my original songs and see that people like them and hire me for my songs. I think that is the most important thing for an artist — to create!”
