14ymedio bigger14ymedio, Havana, 25 December 2016 – Cuban Faces of 2016: Roberto Hidalgo Puentes (Yomil) and Daniel Muñoz Borrego (El Dany) reached the status of the most listened to reggaetoneros in Cuba this year. Previously known for being part of projects like Los 4 and Jacob Forever, respectively, both young men joined last year in a group that has not stopped gaining space in the clubs, private parties and the music section of the weekly packet.

The growing popularity of Yomil and El Dany is partly due to the fusion of electronic rhythms hovering between hip hop and more Cuban rhythms, and all that mixed with the catchy reggaeton. Their most recent album, Overdose, reached first in sales on Google Play last March, on the Top Albums of Latin Music, while their musical theme Tengo debuted in 8th place in World Top Albums.

In the middle of this year, the duo recorded the song Enamorado with Amaury Pérez Vidal, a version of the song Tonada Enamorada, composed by the troubadour in the ‘90s.
