As the newest singer in Manolito's Trabuco, Lázaro brings some new flavor to the line-up with his rapero-flavored style. He's a nephew of the David Calzado, and already cut his teeth on adding rap into the timba mix when he did the rap section at the beginning of the 11th track on Charanga Habanera's "Chan Chan Charanga" album. His presence on stage is a good compliment to Amaray and Sixto, and he can definitely be counted on for some serious energy and wacky coreography. [Lara Greene]
