Fonseca tour venues
Fonseca TicketsBorn Juan Fernando Fonseca in Bogotá, Colombia, in 1979, the singer known solely as Fonseca was singing since his days studying at the Colegio Los Nogales between kindergarten and the ninth grade. Later, he attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass. There, he recorded his debut single and thereafter left college to pursue his career in music full time. He performed in the Bogotá rock scene with a band known as Baroja, even playing at Rock al Parque, and he recorded demo tracks. Fonseca has since gone on to release four studio albums, a compilation album and a pair of live albums.
