Biography


Puerto Rican band Calle 13 was established in 2004 by stepbrothers René Pérez Joglar aka Residente as lead singer and songwriter, and Eduardo José Cabra Martínez aka Visitante as multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and beat producer. They were joined by their half-sister Ileana Cabra Joglar aka PG-13 who serves as backing vocal. Unlike many other bands, the threesome is well known for using unconventional instrumentation in its music and for its satirical lyrics as well as social commentary about Latin American issues and culture.

Calle 13 scored their first record deal with White Lion Records after sending the label a demo tape. The release of their controversial song "Querido F.B.I." successfully earned them nationwide notoriety. In 2005 they gained wider popularity with the release of their eponymous debut album which spawned hit singles "Se Vale Tó-Tó" and "ˇAtrévete-te-te!".Two years later the band ousted their sophomore record "Residente o Visitante" under Sony BMG, which won them a Grammy Award for Best Latin Urban Album and a Latin Grammy for Best Urban Music Album.
