- The mouthpiece: singer René Pérez Joglar, aka Residente
- The multi-instrumentalist/mix-master: Eduardo José Cabra Martínez, aka Visitante
- How they got their band name and aliases: as stepbrothers who remained friends when their parents split, Eduardo often visited René at his home on 13th Street, where they began making music and art together
- Their breakthrough: 2005’s “Querido FBI,” a scathing underground track about the killing of Puerto Rican revolutionary leader Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, which they recorded within 30 hours of his death. It immediately went viral.
- In less than 10 years: the group has garnered 19 Latin Grammy awards (more than any artist ever) and two standard-issue Grammy awards
- Although they’re big in the reggaeton scene: the label doesn’t do justice to their musical palette, which covers electronica, world music, Latin folk, and rock, often within the span of one song
- Residente’s rapping style: sharp, yet clownish and sarcastic
- Instruments you might see Visitante playing: electric guitar, synthesizers, accordions, melodicas, a Puerto Rican cuatro, theremins
- The duo’s latest album: Multi_Viral
- Most mind-blowing collaboration on the record: the title track, featuring Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello on guitar, guest vocals from Palestinian singer Kamilya Jubran, and, no kidding, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange
