DC LatinSound is a four-piece latin rock pop band from Washington DC consisting of Mauro Mir (Vocal & Rhythm Guitar), Roman Arriola (Lead Guitar), Lula Neira (Bass) and Nelson Alvarez (Drums).

The band’s major influences are Heroes del Silencio, The Police, Soda Stereo and the greatest latin singers and songs from the 70’s & 80’s.
Every member of the band has an outstanding musical background such as musical studies in conservatoires and music schools in different countries in America and Europe.
