Krisspy (also "Krisspi", real name Juan de los Santos) is a well-known Dominican Merengue singer who has appeared on a number of compilations, including 100% Dominicano: La Nueva Sangre del Reggaeton and Bachata Tipico. He has also performed with Ingco Crew, a prominent Dominican reggaeton group, and Grupo Aguakate, another merengue tipico group. His lyrics are usually light, humorous (e.g. "Los Limones"), and somewhat raunchy, which has made him a controversial artist. Krisspy got his start as a musician in Geovanny Polanco's group but later started his own group as lead vocalist. He is known for his outrageous performance style, and recently appeared as an actor in the film "Un Macho de Mujer".
Krisspy is known for his modern-style merengue tipico, or perico ripiao. He has various musicians on saxophone, bass, piano, conga, accordion, tambora, and güira, and 2-3 backup singers.
