Gente de Zona (GdZ) can’t get enough… Like a freight train of rhythm, the Cuban duo formed by Alexander Delgado and Randy Malcom won another important award in the show-biz; this time a Latin Grammy for the album Visualizate.
GdZ won the golden phonograph in the category of Best Tropical Fusion Album, a category in which they competed with Cali Flow Latino, Cosa Nuestra, Explosión Negra and Treo.
Cuba attended the 17th edition of the Latin Grammys with the popular dance music orchestra La Charanga Habanera, the National Septeto Ignacio Piñeiro, singer Omara Portuondo, maestro Leo Brouwer, troubadour Tony Ávila, singer-songwriter Francisco Céspedes, and urban artists El B and Jacob Forever, a former member and co-founder of GdZ.
Gente de Zona emerged at East Havana’s Alamar projects. They fuse reggaeton with merengue and salsa, and are well know by hits like El Animal, Pinocho, and more recently Bailando, a world-wide hit.
They have also collaborated with Pitbull, Juan Magán, Enrique Iglesias and Los del Río, with a new version of their hit Macarena. Besides, the group recently recorded with Marc Anthony - declared Person of the Year at the awards - in the songs La Gozadera and Traidora, which have headed the charts for several weeks in several Latin American countries.
