Biography

El Hijo de la Cumbia is a producer of the most prominent nueva cumbia. This fusion of traditional music from South America and dancehall, urban music or dubstep, inflames some years the dancefloors of the capitals of South America.

It is the first Nueva Cumbia artist signed by a European label ("Freestyle de Ritmos" Sept 11 Ya Basta!). In new show Live'Act, El Hijo de Cumbia continues to create and enrich this new sound with his 3 musicians, who play many instruments such as accordion, melodica, latin percussion, synths, vocals filtered samples... In short, a show brimming with imagination and originality, to discover on stage.

In 1996, Emiliano, then aged only 12 years old, discovers the world of music and began playing the keyboard in groups of cumbia with whom he traveled almost all over Argentina. Over the years, He will open to other genres of music and begin to work a more urban ghettos reflection of the world, he dreams of uniting.

After working several years producing and remixing many groups "sonideros" from Mexico and the United States, he began to invest more in reggae scenes and Argentinian hip hop. He produced the group hip hop MP3 among others.
But there are also among his collaborations, Fidel Nadal (ex Todos Tus Muertos), the singer Alika or rapper MustafaYoda.

He recently collaborated on remixes with artists such as Toy Selektah from Sonidero Nacional, Sekreto or Gotan Project, before returning to the production of his second album.
