The story of the Gente de Zona and the Cubon genre
What is unique about the group Gente de Zona, working in a fairly popular genre of Latin American music? It all started quite simply. Alexander Delgado, the founder of Gente de Zona, was born and raised in a very poor area of Havana called Alamar, which is called the “cradle of Cuban hip-hop.” Like all musically gifted people, from childhood Alexander was interested in music and annually attended the festival, held in the open. At school, he was considered a very good performer.
After school, Alexander, together with Michael Delgado, organized a group that performed on small venues and in local houses of culture, gradually attracting more and more attention and winning more and more fans. After Michael left the band in 2005, Alexander invited Jacob and Fernando. The decision of the artists to mix several styles (hip-hop and reggaeton) with Cuban rhythms gave a stunning result. The resulting genre has become known as a cubed. The press calls "Gente de Zona" classics of this trend.
In 2005, after the success of the single “Pa 'la”, the group released their first self-titled album, which attracted the attention of the Cuban public. And already in 2006, the band shot with super hits “Soñé” and “La Campaña”, which became very popular both in Cuba and among fans of Cuban music abroad.
In the following 6 years, Gente de Zona actively released albums and toured Cuba, and even performed the first tour in America, Canada and held two concerts in Paris.
In 2012, instead of leaving the group Jacob and Fernando, Delgado quickly invited Randy Malcolm from the then popular La Charanga Habanera. “Gente de Zona” continued musical creativity with various musicians such as Chino & Nacho, Fanny Lu, Juan Magán and Los Cadillacs, but wide international fame came to them after collaborating with Armando Christian Perez (Pitbull), the track “Vacaciones” and Dominican rapper Edward E. Bello Pou ("El Cata"), the track "Con la Ropa Puesta". These compositions have become popular hits in Latin countries.
In the future, Gente de Zona confidently went to the tops of the charts. Work with Enrique Iglesis (song “Bailando”), collaboration with Puerto Rican singer and composer Mark Anthony. All this turned out to be very successful for the "Gente de Zona". Two collaborations: La Gozadera (over 1 views on YouTube) and Traidora (over 000 views) took first place on the Billboard charts.
Therefore, friends !! Listen, dance and enjoy incendiary Cuban rhythms !!
