The then leader of the band, Elmer Yaipen, died on November 9, 1999 in a traffic accident. After his death, his son Elmer Jr. Yaipén became the main vocalist of the Team 5. Already in 2015, the youngest son of the ‘cumbia pharaoh‘, Christian Yaipen, assumed that position.

Before I was a vocalist, I did backing vocals and was a dancer for a long time, and I’m proud of that. My brothers never made it easy for me, ”said the singer in dialogue with El Comercio.
