Calle Ciega is a boy band from Venezuela. The group originally began singing merengue-based songs, but as the different incarnations of the group progressed the songs moved away from merengue toward the more urban sounds of hip hop and reggaeton.

The first version of Calle Ciega was a seven-piece outfit consisting of Damian Alvarez, David Díaz, Vladimir Mundo, Kingston Luna, Pablo Rivero, Eduardo "Black" Hernandez y Fernando Pineda. The group were extremely successful in their home country, with their first two albums earning them gold and platinum discs, respectively.[1] Alvarez and Pineda left after the first two albums and Christian Rigu was added to the group for their third album, Seguimos Bailando.

A new version of the group recorded Una Vez Más in 2005, with the line-up of Jesus "Chino" Miranda, Miguel Ignacio "Nacho" Mendoza, Luis Fernando "Luifer" Romero, Kent Jaimes and Emilio Vizcaino. Miranda and Mendoza left in 2007 to form the successful duo Chino & Nacho before pursuing solo careers from 2017 onwards. The remaining three members continued for a while before splitting up, with Emilio Vizcaino, who had earlier been part of the Venezuelan musical project Fuera de Clase, and Luifer teaming up in Los Cadillacs.[2]

A third version of Calle Ciega was formed in 2012, featuring Anderson Castro, Aldo Armas, Kevin Arvelo and Sandy Carrero, and released a single "Mía".

The latest line-up of Calle Ciega was unveiled in 2017. The new group consists of Alonson "Alon" Urbina, Edwar "Hommy" Alvarado, Gabriel "Gabo" Mundo and Hecson "Hache" Hernández. The quartet released two singles, "Mi Persona Favorita" and "Ya No Hay Dolor" and a seven-track album titled 2018.[2]
