DC LatinSound

DC LatinSound is a four-piece latin rock pop band from Washington DC consisting of Mauro Mir (Vocal & Rhythm Guitar), Roman Arriola (Lead Guitar), Lula Neira (Bass) and Nelson Alvarez (Drums). The band's distinctiveness is a very characteristic image with a particular iconography and symbology, and a music characterized by ambiguous and transcendental lyrics, complicated arpeggios and a sold rhythmic base.

The band's major influences are Heroes del Silencio, The Police, Soda Stereo and the greatest latin singers and songs from the 70's & 80's.

Every member of the band has an outstanding musical background such as musical studies in conservatoires and music schools in different countries in America and Europe. DC Latin Sound members have played in countries like Chile, Peru, Colombia, El Salvador, Argentina, Mexico, Spain, France, Italy and Germany. In the United States they have played in states like Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, California, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania among others.

Their new EP Power Ballad is a little taste of their musical spirit and a signal of their future path. They look forward to reaching out to their audience's heart with the best of their songs and the best of the universal repertoire.

Hi Steve,

Here are the bands' bios:

TRES MINUTOS is an alternative Rock band from Virginia USA, formed in 2012 by the Torrico brothers (Richi, Luis and Paolo), also joining the band Nestor Fiorilo on the guitar and Guillermo Turcios on the drums (2015).
With the independent launch of their first EP "Volver a Comenzar" TRES MINUTOS was exposed to the local scene in various events around the Washington DC area. After a very positive response from the public the band soon took their music on the road and began touring major cities on the US East coast, sharing the stage with renowned artists like Latin Grammy winner Los Pericos, Los Rabanes, Dr. Krapula and many more.
In late 2014 TRES MINUTOS goes on its first international tour to South America, bringing its music to a broader audience and opening doors to new opportunities. In November 2016 the band launches its latest album "Multiverso". Influenced by bands like Muse(UK), Panda(MX), Royal Blood(UK), Soda Stereo(AR), Arctic Monkeys(UK), the album captures the raw feeling of hard rock mixed with Synths and Electronic undertones.
In early 2018 “Ley de Atracción” and “Tu Reflejo” from the album Multiverso reached the number one spot in various Rock charts in Bolivia, kickstarting a national tour soon after.
With high energetic beats and transcending melodies TRES MINUTOS conveys its own touch and style, providing their audience an enjoyable musical experience in and out the stage.


Rock band "VERSUS" forms in march of 2007 With Mirko Justiniano with guitars, Carlos Romero with the bass, Aldo Zambrana and Maynol Moreno with the drums and Ron Recinos as a singer. By the end of the summer Versus had worked its way up in the local latin rock movement that they got to open well known South American Bands like the Peruvian band LIBIDO, LUCYBELL from chile, and Colombians Latin Grammy nominee SUPERLITIO. and We were also invited to play at the 2007 D.C LATIN ROCK FEST where the head liner was HAMLET another world wide known band from Spain. In 2013 Versus released their first album “Sumergida en la Luna” and in 2018 their 2nd album not yet titled will be released at the end of the year. Current members are Carlos Romero, Ron Recinos, Manuel Gomez and Alejandro Peña.
