One of our favorite genres to perform; we stay true to some of the main sounds, relying heavily on the electric guitar, while also incorporating some latin rhythms. Some of our influences range from Carlos Santana, La Fania All Stars, and Pink Floyd to The Rolling Stones and Manu Chao.
The most representative and contagious genre in Latin music, with a heavy influence in Pop heard around the world. Artists like: Fonsi, Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, Selena and Carlos Vives, to name a few.
