It is a busy month for live reggaeton, Latin pop, and tropical sounds. On Thursday May 14, veteran Puerto Rican rapper Voltio will prove at Terra Mare that there’s more to reggaeton than just Daddy Yankee.  Voltio’s been rapping for years.  On his 2007 En Lo Claro cd he flows in Spanish over salsa and other island sounds in addition to the steady, insistent beat of reggaeton.  Below is a list of May’s impressive live events:

May 14-Voltio at 10 at Terra Mare, 6108 Arlington Blvd., Falls Church, VA
