(San Juan, PR – April 10, 2014)Â – With the completion of what they called the first phase of their MultiViral Tour, Puerto Rican group Calle 13 consolidated, once again, its strong roots in Latin American territory, and successfully concluded itsÂ itineraryÂ around several countries of the continent, with sold-out venues and an assistance of 200,000 people of all ages. Their varied repertoire includes several unreleased tracks from their latest and 5th- musical production, also titled “MultiViral”, among these: Multi_Viral, “El aguante” (Endurance), “Adentro” (Inside), “Ojos color sol” (Sun-colored eyes) and “La vida – Respira el momento”(Life – Breathe in the Moment).
It has drawn attention the way in which this group,-characterized by its diversity in lyrics, powerful messages and distinctive musical fusions- has made part of their performance a pause to ask their followers to turn on their mobiles in solidarity with the release of Oscar Lopez Rivera, a Puerto Rican political prisoner who has spent more than 32 years confined in a Federal prison in the United States, for what is defined as “seditious conspiracy”, a crime of thought, for defending the decolonization of Puerto Rico.

The massive support of their audience has been evidenced through photographs and multiple “retweets” in social media, including messages addressed to President Barack Obama, requesting the release of LÃ³pez Rivera, not as a political action but, instead, as an act of human rights.
