Reik is a Mexican band from Mexicali, Baja California formed by Jesús Alberto Navarro Rosas (lead vocals), Julio Ramírez Eguía (guitar/background vocals), and Gilberto Marín 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, Abelardo Vazquez ended their then-nascent musical project, tentatively called "Reik". Abelardo Vazquez invited Jesús Navarro and Julio Ramirez to record 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 the United States. Their videos have been broadcast on famous music television channels, such as MTV and HTV. Their second studio album, Secuencia, was released on December 12, 2006, which featured the first single, "Invierno" (released on September 18), which gained a lot of popularity based Latin American airplay. On September 30, 2008 Reik released their third studio album Un Día Más, for which they won the Latin Grammy Award for Best Pop Album by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 2009.
Reik confirmed their participation in the Viña del Mar International Song Festival in February 2015, and won the Silver and Golden Seagull after their presentation.
