Los Callejeros

Los Callejeros wants to take everybody on a musical journey to different worlds, inspired by intercultural encounters, both local and international.

With their incomparable sound of the world-mestizo beat, these globetrotting artivists will swipe you off your feet in an overwhelming party.

Every callejero adds his own musical identity to the melting pot, freely experimenting with Afro-latingrooves, Etnic-folkmusic, reggaeskanks, jazz and rock, balkan gipsy stuff and a pinch of European tears. Their urban slang poetry sings about the great clichés of life, social conscience and the great themes of our world in different languages. Los Callejeros has a reputation for being a heart-warming musical surprise.

The Story :

The band Los Callejeros has its roots in the musical documentary 'Caro o Moneda', shot in Cuba. This heart-warming and endearing culture-bridging documentary was selected for the Docville 2006 documentary festival. The project and its makers stirred enthusiasm among a number of professional musicians and gave birth to the band Los Callejeros

Their first album, 'El Camino es el Destino', was released in 2008. Even Selah Sue, a beginning artist at that moment, contributed to the CD with a hidden track. Los Callejeros then went to Peru to shoot the docu-clip 'Mas Corazon'. This kick-started their tour of the same name, bringing their street-vibe to larger stages.

Apart from playing traditional stages, the band decided to tour with a self-managed mobile podium. This allowed them to take their music to wherever their path led them and meet their audiences everywhere in an intimate setting.
