Puerto Rican reggaetón duo Calle 13 is currently filming a documentary in Cuba, official media said Monday, citing band member René Pérez, a.k.a. “Residente,” Fox Latino News reports.
“We’re filming a big documentary about C-13 in Cuba,” said Pérez on his Twitter account, according to a report published on the government Web page Cubadebate.
Pérez said that he traveled to Cuba on a motorboat and that it was “a great experience, a little dangerous but nice at the same time.”
Residente and his stepbrother Eduardo Cabra, known as “Visitante,” make up the alternative music band that has won 20 Latin Grammys and two Grammys.
The duo’s new documentary is being directed by Puerto Rican filmmaker Lidy Paoli López.
Residente and Visitante attended a concert offered by Cuban singer-songwriter Silvio Rodríguez last Thursday at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana.
The Puerto Rican band filmed another 27-minute documentary entitled “Calle 13 en La Habana” (Calle 13 in Havana), by Lester Sibila and Frank Fernández, as a testimony of their visit to the Caribbean country.
Calle 13 performed for the first time in Cuba in 2010 at a huge concert in Havana.
