Reggaeton with Spanish
9/17/06 - LatinRapper.com news / AR Entertainment release
Innovation is the distinctive mark of K-Narias, a duet made up
of Spanish twins Gara and Loyda. They are the first exponents
of the reggaeton genre in their native country, with a fresh
approach that fuses the popular beat with the more tropical
sounds of the salsa and merengue.
After having won Gold Records and sold out concerts in their
native land, K-NARIAS are ready to crossover to the U.S.
supported by UBO (Urban Box Office) which is releasing their
album at the end of the year.
Their first single to be released from the album is "No te
vistas que no vas" an upbeat reggaeton song mixed with salsa
flair. The twins, now 20 years-old, started their artistic
career at the age of 12 taking singing, dance and guitar
lessons. Later on they started to work as backup dancers with
renowned artists in their region, until they were invited to
participate in the festival called "Reggaetuning 2004" in
November 2004. In this festival they saw, for the first time,
the Puerto Rican reggaeton artist Don Omar, who inspired them
to focus on the reggaeton genre. During this event, the
producers Carlos Zerolo and Folfo Camacho spotted their
genuine talent and invited them to audition in Madrid with the
producers of Don Omar, Eliel and Mario Rivera.
Not too long after that, they found themselves recording their
first album "40 entre las dos" in the island of Puerto Rico
with the same team of producers that have worked with Luny
Tunes, Noriega and Master Chris among others.
K-NARIAS identify themselves with the urban genre, music that
comes from the "street". K-NARIAS fresh look, modern and
sensual at the same time, makes them stand out among the very
few female artists of the genre. K-NARIAS is making their U.S.
debut in the super reggaeton event sponsored by La Kalle, La
Kalle Block Party 2006, in New York and soon will make
appearances in other cities in preparation for the release of
their new album.
