Led for many years by the late bassist Juan Formell, Los Van Van is one of the most recognized musical groups in Cuba today. Formell and former band members Changuito and Pupy are some of the most important figures in contemporary Cuban music. Initially their sound was a fusion of son montuno, rumba, and North American rock and pop. Later the band incorporated funk, disco, and Hip Hop as well as salsa. These influences gave rise to a style known as songo, and later timba. The band received the 2000 Latin Grammy Award® for the album Van Van is Here (Llegó Van Van).
