Dos Four (Leyder Chapman) is an impressive performer with a unique sound and powerful lyrics. Each show is delivered with incredible energy and will have the entire audience on their feet moving by the time he is ready to start the second song. The music itself, written and created by Dos Four, is a unique fusion of current and traditional rhythms from both Cuba and the U.S. - a distinct blend of hip hop, reggaeton, salsa, and mambo as well as many other rhythms. And when you listen to this artist's list of influences, you begin to understand why: Benny More, Los Van Van, Charanga Habanera, Muñequitos de Matanzas, Tego Calderon, Don Omar, Snoop Dog and Jay-Z just to name a few.
Dos Four has shared the stage with Danny Losada, Fito Reinoso, Jesus Diaz, Gente De Zona, Don Omar, Ivy Queen, Fulanitos, and others. He has performed at clubs all over the U.S. including the Bay Area, NY, Miami and LA as well as performing in Europe.
Dos Four is proud of his roots and is quoted in saying "Cubans take pride in their culture. We were born with the drum [and] I carry Cuba around like a backpack.”
