Words Four Two returns: the group that broke the mold

The Puerto Rican New Wave has a first and last name: Words Four Two. The group that was born in the mid-1980s revolutionized the music scene of that time, established fashion and style trends and created a movement in popular culture where labels were segmented between rockers, cocolos and new wave.

That movement and concept was driven by an extravagant vocalist, Johnathan Dwayne, percussionist Juan Colberg and the musicians Jose Vila, Eric Hernandez and Armando Lansa, who caused a stir with their style and caused it to be emulated among thousands of people who also enjoyed the music of Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Culture Club, to mention some international artists who wandered between pop and New Wave in the world. However, in Puerto Rico, five Puerto Ricans became pioneers of the new wave movement by fusing their music with the rhythms of salsa, dance and plena. That is why many consider that what Words Four Two did was to creolize the musical style that was already well known in England and the United States.
