Calle 13's Residente and Visitante are nominated for ten Latin Grammys this year, an impressive stat for a group that in the past five years has gone from the viral diatribe of "
Fuck The Dear FBI" to filling stadiums in Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Chile, and wherever else they play.
Lead vocalist Residente recently told Crossfade, "We are fighting for the connection between Puerto Rico and Latin America, because Puerto Rico is disconnected from what is happening in the rest of the world."
Check out Resi and Visi's new video, an amazingly poetic documentary-style tribute to the various customs and cultures of "Latinoamérica."
