Tegui Calderon Rosario (born January 1, 1972) is a Puerto Rican rapper. He is better known to his fans around the world as Tego Calderon, or by the nickname "El Abayarde" (given by his grandmother) which refers to a tiny, slow-moving species of fire ant found in Puerto Rico. The name is in reference to his behavior as a child, which was mischievous and troublesome. In addition to rap music, Tego is considered part of the alternative-reggaeton wave. He has also made songs that are considered "pure" Reggae, (e.g. "Chillin'" from the 2006 album The Underdog/El Subestimado). Tego believes that the roots of Reggaeton include Jamaican Dancehall Reggae and Hip Hop as well as Salsa. His album El Abayarde made him a major Latin star. Calderon has received awards for his work, including a Source Award from The Source Magazine for "International Artist of the Year" and a Tu Música award. He has also received nomination in several ceremonies, including the Latin Grammy, Billboard Award, Premios Lo Nuestro and Premios La Gente. Tego Calderon has also broke records of attendance of audience at a concert in El Salvador, Guatemala, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
