Leonardo Garcia was born in Miami, FL of Colombian parents and had moved within the US and Europe, and he had his beginnings in the musical field as a guitarist and drummer.  During his later teen years, he lived in Germany and performed with an alternative rock band as a keyboardist.  Having traveled back to Colombia to visit family since his childhood, he searched for his musical roots and experience the music of our Latin rhythm and the swing of the Caribbean.

Having studied classical music and Jazz abroad, and returning to the Washington, DC area in the early 80s, he continued to study jazz, composition and arranging where he quickly gravitated to Latin Jazz artists from the styles of Chick Corea, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Machito, Paquito D’Rivera, Ray Barreto and Louie Ramirez, and many others.
