Los Ciegos Del Barrio
New York City's premiere multigenre, bilingual Latin band that plays Latin music in both English and Spanish. the name translates to "The Blind Boys From The Hood."
Fresh, driving, lively and bold, the formidable and eclectic Los Ciegos Del Barrio commands upbeat yet fun-loving music and silly but often philosophical
and thought provoking lyrics in their new album "El Futuro." Their music can best be described as multi-genre, bilingual Latin music including aspects of merengue, bachata,
Cumbia, West African music, salsa, reggaeton and Latin rock to name a few. The album name translates to "The Future." which is meant to symbolize their
outlook in an ever changing world within them and around them. Los Ciegos Del Barrio, an all blind band as their name implies, has had their music dubbed "fun, fun and more fun..."
by Jamsphere Magazine and "changing challenged communities one song at a time" by People Magazine.
With an increasing influx of Internet and terrestrial radio play and interview requests, Los Ciegos has enjoyed a plethora of underground exposure and has even enjoyed some mainstream success with features on Univision TV, Fox News Latino and People Magazine. They were recently awarded by City Access in New York City, for their contributions to the Latin and challenged communities throughout their career.
Los Ciegos Del Barrio continue to reaffirm their great artistry in the United States, as well as overseas in Cuba, Russia and the Dominican Republic, as they have played all kinds of shows from festivals, to school functions to college
parties to corporate functions. Their signature Salsa track, their version of the classic dance hit “Mama Used To Say,” has received much positive feedback, including hitting number one on the independent artist site, ReverbNation.
Los Ciegos Del Barrio is truly the most professional, hard working, yet fun loving band you'll ever come across. they play both originals and covers.
They do not disappoint.
