CALLE 13’s groundbreaking and eclectic urban style has made this Puerto Rican band “one of the most popular and innovative in Latin music, without fitting any recognizable mold.” (NY Times) Formed by stepbrothers René Pérez Joglar a.k.a. Residente (lead singer and songwriter) and Eduardo José Cabra Martínez a.k.a. Visitante (multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, beat producer) and their sister Ileana a.k.a. PG-13 (choirs, background vocals). They released their self-titled debut in 2005 and have since won a record nineteen Latin Grammy Awards, as well as two Grammy Awards. Calle 13 headlines our annual Latin Alternative Music Conference blowout, with which also features Chilean rapper ANA TIJOUX, “a heavyweight on the mic,” (Austin 360) and RITMO MACHINE, a collaboration between Cypress Hill percussionist Eric Bobo and mix master Latin Bitman.
