About Silvestre Dangond
Knowing that his passion in life is music, Dangond
immediately set off to start his musical career after graduating from high school. He became a regular in the local Colombian
music scene, making various friends across different genres whilst recording, performing, and releasing his earliest works.
Encouraged by the vibrant musical scene of Colombia, Dangond would form close friendships with fellow musicians Kaleth Morales
and Ramon Lopez, both of whom would support and inspire Silvestre towards his eventual meteoric rise to fame.
biggest break would come in early 2003, when through a series of fortunate events he was able to meet Juancho De La Espriella.
Junacho was one of the most renowned accordionists in Latin America, let alone Colombia. The two would become fast friends,
and Silvestre looked towards Juancho as a major influence both in his music and in his life. With a strong mentorship forming,
the two would eventually be brought together by manager Carlos Blum as a performing act. The combined star power and talent
of both Dangond and Juancho would produce their first album, a collaborative work spanning thirteen tracks that would eventually
lead the duo onto an extended tour through 2003 and into 2004.
Hot off their first album, the duo headed back into the
studio and released their sophomore record that would become one of the flagship albums of the resurging vallenato (Colombian
folk) movement. The two would continue to tour before heading back into the studio for their third album in three years, and
continue to put out hit album after hit album at a frighteningly fast pace.
Silvestre has received critical recognition
throughout the years, with several nominations from the Latin Grammy Awards. In all he has received 4 nominations since 2009,
all in the Best Cumbia/Vallenato category. Most of his nominations come from work with Juancho De la Espriella, however he
recently has worked with and received nominations while working with famed artist Rolando Ochoa.
most notable early work was Tanto para Ti, a low key 2002 recording which he worked on alongside Roman Lopez. It wasn't until
2003's Lo Mejor Para Los Dos that Dangond would become a household name, with he and Juancho De la Espriella becoming two
of the foremost musicians on the vallenato scene. With hit singles such as "La razon de mi vivir" and "Me vuelve loquito",
Lo mejor para los dos would become one of Dangond's most beloved works.
The duo's second album would be hugely successful,
featuring singles "Me la juego toda" by friend and collaborator Kaleth Morales and "La mujer de mis suenos". Alongside the
hit "La colegiala", this album would become the flagship vallenato album for the duo, making it both a commercial and critical
Silvestre would continue to release albums, and in 2008 dropped El Original, his first ever album to receive
a grammy nomination. Though he wouldn't win, his next three albums - Cantinero, No Me Compares Con Nadie, and La 9a Batalla
would all receive Grammy nods as well.
In between his hectic touring schedule, Silvestre has found
the time to found a rather large family. He currently has three children and is happily married.
