Los Van Van is a Cuban band led by bassist Juan Formell, and is the most recognized post-revolution Cuban bands. Formell is one of the most important figures in contemporary Cuban music.

In 2011, they collaborated with Carlinhos Brown to record the song "Soy Loco por Tí, América" for the Red Hot Organization's most recent charitable album "Red Hot+Rio 2." The album is a follow-up to the 1996 "Red Hot + Rio." Proceeds from the sales will be donated to raise awareness and money to fight AIDS/HIV and related health and social issues.
