Reik is a Latin Grammy-nominated Mexican band from Mexicali, Baja California formed by Jess Alberto Navarro Rosas (lead vocals), Julio Ramrez Egua (guitar/background vocals), and Gilberto Marn Espinoza (guitar). The group's name actually means "rake" (as in raking the guitar's strings", but the band wanted their Mexican listeners to pronounce it correctly, hence, Reik.
In 2003, Jess Navarro and Julio Ramirez started their then-nascent musical project, tentatively called "Reik". It was then they recorded their first demos, which were released through the Mexican underground club scene. Two of the most successful demos " "Levemente" and "Ahora Sin Ti" " brought more widespread coverage across Mexico. In early 2004, Reik invited Gilberto to join the band. They have been famous ever since, mainly in Latin America, Mexico, and southern parts of the United States. Their videos have been broadcasted on famous music television channels, such as MTV and HTV. Their second album, Secuencia, was released on November 14, 2006, which featured the first single, "Invierno" (released on November 6), which gained a lot of popularity based Latin American airplay.
