About the Songwriters:
SNENiE: Performing at 6 PM ET
A singer-songwriter born and raised in Dominican Republic, SNENiE made her debut in the pop alternative world in December 2018 with her single “Florecer.” Launched independently, the song caught the public’s attention, amassing more than 270K streams on Spotify. In May 2019, SNENiE released her second single, “Papel,” a breakup story that serves as the prologue for “Florecer.”
During 2019 SNENiE participated in Dominicana’s Got Talent, the local version of Simon Cowell’s world-renowned franchise, with her original music. She paid homage to Dominican singer-songwriter Vicente García by covering his song “Ahí Ahí” on the program and became one of the most popular participants in the show’s semifinals. That year, SNENiE also headlined more than ten shows in addition to local festivals. She has collaborated with brands such as Jameson, Skyy Vodka and Ambev. Currently SNENiE (whose career began at five years old) is preparing to launch her EP in the fall. Her first single “Nubes” is an upbeat pop alternative track produced by Gian Rojas.
Los Rivera Destino: Performing at 7 PM ET (8 PM Puerto Rico)
Los Rivera Destino is a social satire band from Puerto Rico that uses music as a vehicle for their humorous thoughts and lyrics. From their beginnings in 2012 with home videos and concerts in the smallest bars of Puerto Rico, the group captured the attention of music fans and grew exponentially fast on social media. Los Rivera Destino is now ranked as one of the best known acts on the Puerto Rico independent music scene.
Comprised of Carlos Figueroa (lead vocals), Antonio Sánchez (Vocalist and presenter) and Fernando Tarrazo (Vocalist and musical director), the band’s repertoire includes a range of sounds and musical styles from bolero to rock. When the trio comes together, their high energy concerts are a unique live experience combining moments of romantic bohemia and touches of irony.
After years of creating content for social networks, in 2018 Los Rivera Destino gained attention with a bolero version of the hit "Te Boté." They have performed at some of the most well-known venues in Puerto Rico and aspire to play in the greatest stages inside and outside the island.
