Chabuco is an innate talent who grew up in the Colombian coast in an environment surrounded by art, musicians, painters and composers. With his ability to play guitar, accordion and percussion as well as his extraordinary and original voice, Chabuco entered the musical world for the first time as one of the four members of the group “Los Pelaos” (1998-2000). After the group parted ways, Chabuco began his solo career. His albums ”Morirme de Amor” (featuring Cuban Alfredo Nodarse), ”Nació Mi Poesía” (with Nicolas de los Rios), “Clásicos Café La Bolsa” and ”De Ida y Vuelta” are a musical journey of many different genres. This last album sold over half a million copies via Colombian newspaper El Tiempo, something never done before by any artist in the country. Chabuco had the honor of participating in the documentary “La guitarra vuela” (2016), which follows the 9-country tour of the last guitar made for the late Spanish musical genius Paco de Lucia. He has performed in major international venues including the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico, the Sala Berlanga in Madrid and the House of Blues in Stockholm, Sweden; besides having collaborated with top international artists such as Alejandro Sanz, Juanes, Fonseca, Rosana, the Brothers Carmona, Magos & Limon, Daniel Baute, Sole Giménez, Diego El Cigala, Mojito Lite and Rosario Flores among many others.
Released in May, 2018, “Encuentro” is Chabuco’s 5th album and his first under the record label Sony Music. It is available digitally through iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Lola Music, Light Music and Napster. In ”Encuentro”, Chabuco fuses the sounds of folk music from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, with jazz and bossa nova creating a beautiful Latin Jazz sound.
The album was recorded in São Paulo, Brazil and produced by Swami Jr. (Omara Portuondo, Chico César). It includes collaborations with the Spaniard Alejandro Sanz, Dominican Vicente Garcia and the famous Brazilian pianist Zé Godoy.
