El Hijo de la Cumbia started his musical career in 1996. From that moment on, he took part in several Argentine Cumbia music bands. In 2000, he started listening to other musical genres originating in ghettos from all across the world, such as Reggae, Dancehall, Hip Hop, Jazz, Dub, etc.
Very much influenced by Colombian Cumbia music, he then decided to experiment by mixing Colombian rhythms with African ones and new styles.
Known as a Sonidero producer for Mexican and American bands, he has worked in the most important Mexican and US music scenes. There, he made his remixes and concoctions, which were back in the day quite peculiar. For instance, his mixes may feature Andrés Landero (as far as many people are concerned, the father of Cumbia music) on 100% Jamaican or hip-hop tracks, with a clear inclination towards dub.
El Hijo de la Cumbia aims at showing that all African rhythms can be respectfully mixed, that music overcomes all language barriers, and that music is not there for us to simply dance and listen to, but also for us to let our imagination fly and feel free.
He recently collaborated on remixes with artists such as Toy of Selektah Sonidero Nacional Sekreto or Gotan Project, before returning to the production of his second album to be released during 2010.
