Nene Malo is an Argentinian cumbia group, belonging to the "Wave Turra" Argentina cumbia style that became popular from cumbia groups like "Los Wachiturros." Particularly Nene Malo uses the same style, but with a saxophone in the foreground, that became popular in 2012 in much of Latin America, with songs like "Dance Rochas and Chetas" and "How I hate the night."

The band was formed on January 4, 2012 in Lomas de Zamora, Buenos Aires, Argentina, by their leader and music producer Franco "Zeta" Jordy Zeballos and Santi, with their musical director "Daniel Vazquez." From that moment they decided to have five musicians, a DJ and two dancers to arm band and live show.

The style some call electro-reggaeton, is made by combining dance music sounds with lyric, reggaeton and cumbia rhythms.

The main feature of the live show is their constant energy, the choreography of the dancers and lighting effects, making it an amazing show.

The first cut they put out is "Rochas and Chetas Dance" theme which immediately became a hit, which plays in all the radios and clubs in Argentina.

This success allowed Nene Malo to go beyond the borders of Argentina and reach much of Latin America and Europe.

Their new cut called "Turn yourself" is already playing in the country due to their rapidly growing following.
