Grammy Award-nominated Puerto Rican singer Jerry Rivera grew up surrounded by salsa music and musicians. After the release of his first full length album Empezando A Vivir, Rivera was given the title “El Bebe de la Salsa.” Since then, he has gone on to carve out a career for himself as one of the world’s most famous Latin pop stars, bringing his high-energy performances and smooth vocals to fans around the world. Rivera’s newest single “Quien de los Dos” is currently Top 10 on Billboard’s Tropical chart.

N’Klabe is a Puerto Rican salsa group formed in 2003 by Héctor Torres, Félix Javier Torres, and Ricardo Porrata. The group has been nominated for several awards during its short career and is hailed “the future of Salsa music” by such pioneers of the genre as Cheo Feliciano. Both N’Klabe’s albums — and two of their most well-known songs — feature collaboration with reggaeton artist Voltio. The group also recently collaborated with R.K.M. & Ken-Y. In 2008, N’Klabe began an international promotional tour, organizing performances in Peru, Colombia and the United States performing to crowds as large as 35,000 people. (Source)
