Puerto Rican reggaeton duo Calle 13 is currently filming a documentary in Cuba, official media said Monday, citing band member Rene Perez, a.k.a. “Residente.”

“We’re filming a big documentary about C-13 in Cuba,” said Perez on his Twitter account, according to a report published on the government Web page Cubadebate.

Perez said that he traveled to Cuba on a motorboat and that it was “a great experience, a little dangerous but nice at the same time.”

Residente and his stepbrother Eduardo Cabra, known as “Visitante,” make up the alternative music band that has won 20 Latin Grammys and two Grammys.

The duo’s new documentary is being directed by Puerto Rican filmmaker Lidy Paoli Lopez.

Residente and Visitante attended a concert offered by Cuban singer-songwriter Silvio Rodriguez last Thursday at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana.

The Puerto Rican band filmed another 27-minute documentary entitled “Calle 13 en La Habana” (Calle 13 in Havana), by Lester Sibila and Frank Fernandez, as a testimony of their visit to the Caribbean country.

Calle 13 performed for the first time in Cuba in 2010 at a huge concert in Havana.
