Proyecto Uno

Proyecto Uno

Proyecto Uno (English: Project One) is a Dominican-American latin house group which helped popularize a style of music which blends merengue with rap, techno, dancehall reggae and hip-hop music. The band was founded in New York City's East Side in 1989 by Nelson Zapata and managed by Porfirio "Popi" Piña. Originally formed as traditional merengue band, Proyecto Uno received recognition in the 1990s after incorporating modern Afro-American and North American music. The group won Billboard Latin Music Awards, Premios Lo Nuestro, and an Emmy award. The current members are Nelson Zapata, Josue Cedeño, Kid G, and Paolo tondo.
