Leandro Medina (aka “Insurrecto”), is an award winning Cuban Reggaetón vocalist/rapper and the nephew of world-renowned Cuban singing star Celia Cruz.”  Leandro was born with music in his blood, and began singing publicly at 17 years old, recording his first song at the age of 20.  Leandro’s initial recordings were with a group called “Klave Kuba,” the group that had introduced him to the sounds of Reggaetón (a fusion of Cuban music and Hip-hop).

Later Insurrecto’s talent was discovered by the well-known artist “Baby Lores” and together they joined forces and toured as “Clan 537.”  During this time Insurrecto released a number of top-rated songs and was recognized by his fans and the Latin Music Industry as an incredible rapping talent (see what he does when asked to rap on the spot in this 2018 Telemundo TV Interview.).  Many of his fans, however, are just now realizing that he also has an outstanding singing voice and substantial vocal range.  Clan 537 & later Insurrecto (as a solo artist), won many awards including “Artista del Año” (Artist of the year) and “Canción del Año” (Song of the year) both in Cuba.

“Insurrecto” began touring as a solo artist performing in over 15 countries including Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Mexico, Germany, France, Russia and more.  Meanwhile he has collaborated with many top Latino artists including the elite “Juan Formell Y Los Van Van”, “El Micha,” “El Chacal,” “Gente de Zona,” “Kola Loka,” “The Buena Vista Social Club,” “David Calzado with Charanga Habanera,” “Osdalgia,”Vania,” “José Luis Cortez,” “Pedrito Calvo,” and many others.  See his most recent collaboration posthumously with his Aunt Celia Cruz on the song Kimbara on his new Album “Animal” released on October 25, 2018 or read his full press release here.

Born in El Cerro (one of the 15 districts of Habana), Insurrecto has always been devoted to his Cuban roots and explains that “My neighborhood is my truth, my laughter, my tears, my victory, my defeat and the social reality of my birthplace is the inspiration for my lyrics”

Insurrecto is currently represented by Matta Records (i.e., well-known Latino producer “Electronico”  – aka Javier Ojeda – CEO of Matta Records) and very recently released his latest album “Animal,” which is available on all the major music platforms including YouTube.
