Andres Cepeda in Concert 22/7/2011

Multi-award winning and Grammy nominated Colombian singer songwriter Andres Cepeda makes his debut UK show at one of London’s most intimate venues, Union Chapel in Islington. Andres Cepeda is one of Colombia’s most talented artists whose popularity has been recognized across Latin America and Spain, where we won the prestigious 40 Principales award for ‘Best Male Pop Artist’.

He started his career as a member of Bogota’s rock band Poligamia, recording 4 albums over a successful 8-year career, but despite the tremendous success of the band, Andres Cepeda decided to follow on a solo career releasing the album Se Morir which sold over 100.000 copies in Colombia alone, the success of his debut solo album set Cepeda on a new direction and sound, performing classic Latin rhythms such a bolero, mixing it with Cuban influences and contemporary pop rock arrangements, and presenting it in various formats such as rock with his band, classical with the Colombian Philharmonic Orchestra, jazz with Horacio ‘El Negro’ Hernandez, and acoustic or acapella.

Andres Cepeda’s contemporary vision made him and instant success and this enabled him to work with some of Colombia’s finest artist including Fonseca and Cabas, tour internationally throughout Latin America, Spain, Europe, Canada, Brazil and the USA and further releasing 5 more albums.

Andres Cepeda’s latest album ‘Dia tras Dia’ (Day after Day) reached the No1 position in Colombia within a few weeks of being released, and became his most successful to date, nominated for 3 Latin Grammy Awards in the categories of ‘Song of the Year’, ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Best Male Pop Album’ and winner of 5 awards at Colombia’s Premios Nuestra Tierra including ‘Best Artist of the Year’.

In 2010 he started touring ‘Dia tras Dia’ with over 40 concerts across Latin America and the USA, and this year he returns to Europe for an extended tour when he makes his debut UK show at London’s Union Chapel on Friday 27th May.
