Caña Brava

This merengue band of excellent musicians and natural dancers is comprised of three young singers: Ronald Castro, Kirk Coleman and Nelson Díaz. The have succeeded in the merengue music scene on the considerable strength of their combined talents and fresh, modern presentation.

Their 1992 debut album No Me Faltes Nunca was a Gold selling record. In its very first year, the group was invited to perform at the New York Merengue Festival in Madison Square Garden. They went on to perform at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. They were also nominated by Billboard for the prestigious “El Nuestro” award, as the Best New Band and again as for Band of the Year. In Puerto Rico, they received the “Premio Diplo” award for New Band of the Year.

Recently, they completed their fifth United States tour and, as with previous tours, they received rave acclaim. Their hit song “A Caballo, Oh, Oh” is frequently requested all around the world. Their Best of the Best album, released in 1994, won them an Ace award for Band of the Year.

The band was reformed in 2000 and subsequently released Y Por Qué No, followed later that same year by a compilation album of some of their best singles, Frente a Frente: Cana Brava Vs. Zona Roja mixed with hit singles of their “opponent”, the popular Puerto Rican merengue group: Zona Roja.

The group most recently released Y Nadie lo Puede Pararam (2002) on the Universal Music Latino label, mixing the merengue style with which they won their fame, like the leading track, Mujeres, together with bachatas and other genres.
