Music Monday: Calle 13

So, this Puerto Rican band of stepbrothers is not exactly underground, but all the more reason they’re worth noting. They have won nineteen Latin Grammy Awards and two plain Grammy Awards. Their sound is sort of…eclectically reggaeton? Ya, just give them a listen for yourself.

One of their first big singles, Se Vale To-To is very reggaeton. Dirrrrty.

More, er, wholesomely, Latinoamérica has a very nice video and good sentiment. As a sidenote Calle 13 is very supportive of the Puerto Rican independence movement.

No Hay Nadie Como Tú is kind of silly and cute. Also very easy to understand heh.

Well that should be enough to get you started, they have quite a collection of videos on Youtube so you can just keep going through “Related Videos.”  I realize I have not been doing many lyrically deep artists, (well some of these guys’ stuff is) but hey at least you’re staying relevant. I’ll see what I can do though. Here it is rain rain rain, and unfortunately that makes the cat kind of crazy. Hope your week is off to a good start!  (Manu is in a mess of final work, hence the no fruit friday. We’ll get it to you this week though.)
