New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The story of Circo:
Circo was born in 2001 in Puerto Rico. Founded by José Luis Abreu aka Fofe (Lead Singer), Edgardo Santiago aka Egui (Keyboards) and José David Pérez (Drums) all ex-band members of the renowned alt-rock band El Manjar de los Dioses (1994-2000). The group was joined by Orlando Méndez (Guitars), and Nicolas Cordero (Bass) who later left the band in 2006.

Circo made history as the first independent alt-rock band from Puerto Rico to receive two Latin GRAMMY® nominations for their first album "No todo lo que es pop es bueno" produced by Marteen Andruet. In 2005, their second album "En el cielo de tu boca" received four Latin GRAMMY nominations. In 2007, with the release of their third album "Cursi" produced by Aureo Baqueiro, the band received multiple nominations to the Latin GRAMMY and Premio Lo Nuestro®, among other prestigious award shows. In 2009 the band announced a hiatus, only getting back together for special presentations in 2012 and 2014.

During their time apart each band member continued with their own creative projects. Egui worked with Cultura Profética, Draco Rosa and Ozuna. David recorded and /or performed with Jorge Drexler, Calle 13, Pedro Capó, Bad Bunny, Trending Topics, among others. Fofe created his solo project Fofe y los Fetiches with whom he released two albums under his own independent label. Orlando has distinguished himself as a sound engineer working in the most important venues in Puerto Rico. After a thirteen year long break, in December 2019 Circo returned to the recording studio to record and produce their most recent album "Adiós Hola". The new album will be released in May 2020 under the record label La Buena Fortuna Music and distributed by Sony Music Latin.
