Venezuela’s Chino and Nacho Release New Album

MIAMI – Venezuelan duo Chino and Nacho have released their new album, “Supremo,” on which they blend an assortment of sounds ranging from rock to a ballad with salsa star Luis Enrique and with which they are trying to get away from the popular perception that they are a reggaeton group.

“I think that people think we do reggaeton because about four years ago when we started as a duo we experimented with that rhythm,” Miguel Mendoza, better known as Nacho, told Efe regarding the 11-song album that went on sale on Wednesday.

The singer was referring to the duo’s early days, when Puerto Rican reggaeton icon Don Omar sponsored their international launch, as well as one of their first successes: “Ese hombre soy yo.”

He added that reggaeton “belongs more to Panama and Puerto Rico” and that along with his partner Jesus “Chino” Miranda his artistic career has been a learning and evolving process.

“We’ve tried to evolve and absorb everything we can from each musical genre, tropical or Caribbean, because that makes us proud to feel Latino,” he said.

The winners of a Latino Grammy agreed that by “making that tropical fusion” now their sound leans more toward merengue than toward reggaeton.

Chino and Nacho will pursue their promotional tour in Miami after which they will continue throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and South America. EFE
