The duo won two Grammy Awards and 10 Latin Grammies.
I am very happy, because this concert could be achieved with much sacrifice. We are not collecting and we are taking the entire band along, said singer Rene Perez, known as “Resident”, to digital media outlets cited by Cubadebate.
Calle 13, also formed by Eduardo Cabra, “Visitor”, tried for two years to perform in Cuba, but this was prevented for a number of reasons, including denial of visas by the U.S. government.
We wanted to go from some time and we could not connect ... But now everything was smooth because we are not doing anything wrong, just music. We are going for the people, because I want them to listen to me and I will listen to them, said Perez.
The duo, formed in 2005, has won two Grammy Awards and 10 Latin Grammies in the United States.
Two days after their presentation in Havana city, the Puerto Ricans will give a concert in Miami where anti-Cuban groups have pressured artists who performed at the massive “Peace without Borders Concert” last year.
