CALLE 13 Captures “The Covers”


calle13prees2007If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the multiple covers and several thousand words of advance features that have just hit newsstands about the forthcoming second record from Triple Latin Grammy winners Calle 13 should be an indication that “Residente o Visitante” (set for release April 24th) is clearly the most-anticipated new Latin album of the year. The groundbreaking duo of brothers has already redefined the concept of urban-alternative Latin music with their widely praised debut album, and is now set to further push the
boundaries of Latin genre classification.  A clear example is the album’s first single “Tango del pecado” (“Tango of Sin”) – a unique fusion of  tango with Latin hip-hop that features two-time Oscar winner Gustavo Santaolalla and his Bajafondo tango club, which has already become a fast staple in the rotation of all major Latin video networks.  The album’s genre-expansion and lyrical outspokenness continues with tracks that feature guests such as Tego Calderón, Orishas, La Mala Rodriguez & Vincento from Fabulosos Cadillacs.
