Xperimento is a bilingual, multicultural band that blends world sounds such as Cumbia, Reggae, Merengue, Ska, Salsa, and Funk with elements of Rock, R&B, Hip Hop and Dancehall, creating the original genre called: “Latin Reggue Urban Soul”. Their electric performances and catchy-upbeat songs get the attention of everyone who listens and dances to their unique rhythm.
Xperimento was formed by the Director of the band, Emiliano “Chefunk” Torres, who decided to gather professional musicians and songwriters to play live and experiment with diverse genres. Each member brings a special flavor to the equation by mixing different Latin rhythms, thanks to their backgrounds from Argentina, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and Colombia. The members have been playing live for over two years, but they have known each other for almost ten years from the music scene in Miami.
The main members of Xperimento are: Camilo “Tumbao” Sierra (Lead voice), Emiliano “Chefunk” Torres (Director of the band, Trumpet, M.C. & choro), Guillermo “Chamo” Cabral (M.C. & Guitars), Marcos Delgado (Bass & choro), and Alan Reyna (Percussion).
