Miami, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–June 10, 2002–mun2 television, the new cable television alternative for young U.S. Latinos, today announced three rock specials featuring the well-known bands La Mosca (June 16, 7PM ET/PT), Juanes (June 23, 7 PM ET/PT) and Los Rabanes (June 30, 7 PM ET/PT). These original productions will vibrate with great music, special reports, concerts and an inside look at each band.
La Mosca tsé-tsé, one of Argentina’s rock groups of the day, follows in the footsteps of Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and Los Pericos from the same country. Their leanings to Latin ska-reggae is reaffirmed in their most recent CD, “Buenos Muchachos,” where the Ramallo boys (Guillermo Novellis, Fernando Castro, Pety Cortagerena, Adrián Cionco, Julio Clark, Pablo Tisera, Marcelo Lutri, Mariano Balcarce, Raúl Mendoza, Sergio Cairat, and Martín Cardoso) also include guaracha rock, soft rock, salsero rock, cumbia… and even a tango.
Moreover, Colombian singer, composer, guitarist, arranger and producer Juanes draws inspiration from his country’s folklore, and uses cumbia, bambuco, vallenato and salsa rhythms and sounds to create a full-flavored Latin rock. His second album, “Un Día Normal,” features 11 original tracks, including Nelly Furtado’s spectacular voice, with a lot of swing and in a more cheerful and festive mood than in his first production, “Fíjate Bien.”
Finally, Los Rabanes, a name synonymous with sheer fun for millions of their fans. The Panamenian trio, made up of Emilio Regueira, Christian Torres and Javier Saavedra, has got young people from Latin America and Spain all excited with their explosive musical amalgamations, including hip-hop, rock, calypso, punk and rap. Their most recent album, “¿Money, Pa’ Que?,” introduces the English version of their popular track “My Commanding Wife.”
