Before winning the 2015 Latin Grammy Award for Best Traditional Tropical Album and sparking collaborations with salsa stars like José Alberto “El Canario” and Rubén Blades, the seven captivating performers honed their sound in nightclubs, cultivating an infectious call-and-response style that continues to heat up dance floors wherever they perform.
