Calle 13 is now playing MEINL Percussion

 

MEINL percussion is extremely proud to welcome Andrés "Kino" Cruz and Frank David Fuentes to the MEINL family. 

Andrés from Puerto Rico and Frank from Cuba are the two percussionists behind the massive sound of Calle 13, a multi award winner band from Puerto Rico. 

Calle 13 holds the record of most Latin Grammy wins by a group. Their most recent album won 9 Latin Grammy, more than any other album in the history of the awards.

They hold numerous other awards including those from MTV and Billboard.

In 2014 the band will commence one its most ambitious international tour to date, that will run through the beginning of 2015 and MEINL is proud to be part of this journey. 

They anticipate that they will perform in front of 2.5 M+ fans during this period, mostly in arenas, making this one of the biggest ever tour runs for a Latin artist.

Here is what the press says about Calle 13

“Calle 13 dominates popular Latin Culture.”

‒The Associated Press

“Visionary… Few urban acts, in any language, match so much ambition to

so much fun.”− The New York Times

"God help you if you have not heard of Calle 13." - New York Daily News

 I'm very excited about having Andrés and Frank as part of the team. So stay tuned for updates as they are about to start the tour in March 1. 

 

Welcome Andrés and Frank!
