San Juan, May 4 (EFE).- Puerto Rico reggaeton star Don Omar was back in his homeland to give his "Hecho en Puerto Rico" (Made in Puerto Rico) concert, in which he showed once more that he is "the king" of urban music, and in which he was accompanied by colleagues Daddy Yankee, Yandel, Arcangel and Natti Natasha.

The show kicked off with the entry into the Jose M. Agrelot Coliseum in San Juan of 40 individuals constumed as Taino Indians, considered the first indigenous tribe on the Caribbean island.

Don Omar, 35, came onstage accompanied by 20 dancers in the role of Spanish conquistadors and singing snatches of the songs "Reportense," "Puedo con Todos," "El Rey," "Conteo" and "Virtual Diva."

"This is working out above all expectations. This is what it's all about," Don Omar said, moving on with "Sexy Robotica" to further arouse the audience of more than 11,000 attending the concert in the U.S. commonwealth.

The artist, who last week was honored with 10 Billboard Latin Music Awards out of the 18 nominations he secured, went on with the show vocalizing "Salio el Sol," "Belly Danza," "Salvaje," "Candela," "Mi Nena" and "Angelito."

And when Don Omar, Yandel, Arcangel and Daddy Yankee joined forces to sing "Mayor que Yo," the audience went wild with excitement.

Daddy Yankee then stayed onstage for duets with Don Omar of "Hasta Abajo" and "Desafio." The artists, considered the top two stars of reggaeton, were at daggers drawn for several years but eventually made their peace.

The concert reached its climax with the number "Yo Soy de Aqui" (I'm From Here), with the combined voices of Don Omar, Yandel, Arcangel and Daddy Yankee, who now call themselves "the super insuperables" of reggaeton.
