Regional Mexican duo Akwid has signed with the William Morris Agency.

Akwid, made up of brothers Sergio and Francisco Gomez, is the most successful of a recent slew of acts that blend traditional banda and regional Mexican music with rap and hip-hop, for a fusion that's been called banda/rap or regional urbano.

Akwid's debut album, "Proyecto Akwid" (Univision), was released last year and remained in the top 15 of Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart for 10 consecutive weeks. The duo is a multiple finalist in the upcoming Billboard Latin Music Awards.
