Created in the image and likeness of youth groups such as Take That, the band's music fused pop with salsa, merengue, vallenato and other Latin rhythms, including a later touch of flamenco. All music was accompanied by a worked choreography that gave a personal touch.

Their playlist includes Diane Warren's Nadie nos va a detener (Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now, Spanish Version).

Following Jovenes (1997), their third official album, Nadie Nos Va a Detener, a collection of uptempo, danceable salsa, was released by Rodven Records in 1998.[1]

They Covered Stevie Wonder's Rocket Love on their album "Baila Conmigo"[2]
