Five Latin Grammy nominations, collaborations with Jorge Drexler, Mon Laferte and Natalia Lafourcade are just some of the achievements he had last time The David Aguilar, a Mexican native of Sinaloa who a while ago He has established himself in the most underground scene, but now shines as one of the most interesting composers of the Latin scene.
With a diversity of influences and incursions that make it impossible to classify it in a style, the musician arrived in Chile to be part of the International Festival of Innovation, Fiis 2018, this Saturday, December 8 at Parque Araucano.
In conversation with the DNA of the citizen, David Aguilar recounted how his career has changed in recent times and how his ties with Chile are strengthened because after collaborations with Mon Laferte, he will meet again with Los Tres in a tribute to Marco Antonio Solis, will be part of a tribute also to the own band of Álvaro Henríquez and also has a joint work with Pedro Piedra pending.
