Calle 13
13 Videos

Initially associated with the reggaeton genre upon gaining popularity in the early 2000s, Puerto Rican band Calle 13’s unique instrumentation and incorporation of social commentary put them into a class all their own. Comprised of stepbrothers "Residente" and "Visitante" and their half-sister ("PG-13" or "ILE"), all of whom subsequently went solo, the group holds the record for the most Latin Grammys wins.

Calle 13 joins up with Cuba’s Orishas to sing a paean to those pobres who hike pa’l norte (northward) in search of a better life. The first 13 captions are very colloquial and difficult, but after that this video is very clearly annunciated with lots of great vocabulary, so hang in there! This song is thought-provoking and catchy. No one will ever accuse Calle 13 of taking a weak position in rhythm or in politics!
