Aseres has experienced such a boom that they have a 2020 agenda in which there is no longer room for a single event. Orihuela is the alma mater of a project that was born in 2014 with only two members and since 2018 in the current trio format. With two and three members, they have been expanding their music in such a way that on weekends, between festivals, venues, concerts or private events, they have no rest. During 2019 they gave 340 performances and things are increasing for this year.
The cocktail that Orihuela prepares in each performance, accompanied by Alberto Óscar Valdés on percussion and Luis Javier Pérez on bass, results in a repertoire of Latin music and a review of some of the most outstanding themes of old and most current reggaeton.
