Los Ciegos Del Barrio

Hello everyone,
Our name literally translates to "The Blind Boys From The Hood", which was originally meant as a joke on the part of one of our band members as we played our very first jam session as a band.
We are all legally blind and most of us were born in "El Barrio", also known as "Spanish Harlem."
The name, while it is just a name, in jest speaks of what we are, but doesn't reflect who we are.
Who are we?
We are a successful multigenre bilingual Latin band that plays Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Cumbia, Reggaeton, Pop and Rock music in English and Spanish.
We are of Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban and Guatemalan descent.
We represent all of Latin America, New York City, the musician community, as well as the blind and visually impaired community through our talents and the countless joy we have brought to people with our music. We are so appreciative that we have been given the opportunities to entertain around the US, as well as Russia, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. We hope we represent all of these communities with pride.
We are currently working on our 5th album to go along with 3 single releases.
We are so thankful for all of you who have supported us.
