Reggaeton superstar Tego Calderón is back this month with a new and original video for his song “Robin Hood”. Directed by Kacho Santiago Lopez, the video is the next installment from a special series of music videos being launched from Calderón’s mixtape, El Original Gallo del País – O.G. El Mixtape (The Original Rooster of the Country – OG The Mixtape), which was launched in June.
Calderón was very involved with the director in the creation of the concept for “Robin Hood”and had the final input for the recording, location and treatment of the video. The video “Robin Hood” contains a preview of the song “Si Yo Fuera Usted” (If I Were You), which belongs to the genre known as “bomba,” folkloric music native to his homeland Puerto Rico. The video focuses on several sociopolitical and economic themes such as the immigration of Dominicans to Puerto Rico. Watch the video below.
Calderón will be participating in the next Jiggiri Records release called La Prole: Con Respeto a Mis Mayores (The Family: With Respect to My Elders), a folkloric “bomba” album that will be released October 2, 2012. His own commercial follow-up album El Que Sabe Sabe (He Who Knows, Knows) is due out March of 2013.
