René Juan Pérez Joglar grew up in a working-class area of the Porto Rican region Trujillo Alto. Attracted to art and music from a young age, he would earn a scholarship to the Escuela de Artes Plásticas (School of Visual Arts) in San Juan and later work in film.

His first forays into music came with the highly successful hip hop band Calle 13. Adopting the moniker Residente, he now also works as a solo artist and released his eponymous album last year to widespread critical acclaim.

Whatever Calle 13 fans expected of their conscious rap hero Residente, it probably wasn't this self-titled debut. Residente is a statement of global solidarity, co-starring a madcap assortment of collaborators from 10 different parts of the world, to which the Puerto Rican icon traced back his DNA from a saliva test.” - Rolling Stone

Artist Bio

Residente is a Puerto Rican rapper, writer, filmmaker, producer and founder of the alternative rap group Calle 13. He has won 4 Grammy Awards and 25 Latin Grammy Awards - more than any other Latin artist.
Born René Juan Pérez Joglar, he studied fine art for 8 years, before launching an independent career as a lyricist, performer and director of many his own music videos. His lyrics have been lauded by critics and studied by academics at universities around the world.
Residente spent more than a decade as the voice of Calle 13, the genre-splicing Puerto Rican duo of Residente and Visitante " his half brother Eduardo José Cabra Martinez " who composed and produced the music. Calle 13 started out close to reggaeton and socially conscious hip-hop, like a Puerto Rican Public Enemy, but its ideas advanced exponentially through its five albums.
Eventually, Calle 13’s songs dipped into hip-hop, salsa, klezmer, Native American chants, hard rock, even Irish jigs, while Residente’s lyrics offered sociopolitical commentary, raunch, science fiction and solidarity with a worldwide underclass. On tour, the group sometimes collected admission prices in food, to be distributed to the local poor or disaster victims. Residente often displayed political slogans on his T-shirt or his painted chest.
Calle 13 quickly reached the arena circuit across Latin America, and its recordings have won more Latin Grammy Awards " 25 " than any other act. Its 2011 song Latinoamérica, featuring celebrated singers from Peru, Brazil and Colombia, became something like a hemispheric anthem.
After the tour that followed Calle 13’s remarkable 2014 album, “Multi_Viral,” an embrace and critique of internet culture, Residente and Visitante went separate ways, and Residente became the architect of his own music.
A few years ago, Joglar took a DNA test that traced his genes back to 10 vastly different locales " from his native Puerto Rico to Armenia, Ghana to China. An artist long invested in breaking down boundaries of all kinds, Joglar decided that these results would serve as the conceptual framework for his next project in 2017 " the self-titled LP Residente. The album won the Latin Grammy for best urban music album and was named Billboard's Best Spanish Language Album of the Year.
He is recognised for his commitment to social justice, championing educational and native rights across Latin America. In November 2015, Residente received the Nobel Peace Summit Award for his commitment to social awareness and promoting peace. He has also served as the spokesperson for several UNICEF and Amnesty International campaigns.
