El Hijo de la Cumbia in London 25/10/10

EL HIJO DE LA CUMBIA – Emiliano Gómez
Music producer / Selector / Musician / Composer

In 1996, at the age of 12, Gómez made his first performances on stage in Argentina, where he played for well-known tropical bands which he toured throughout the country with.
At the age of 16, he began to produce his own band and met DJ Taz. At that time, he was influenced by other music genres like the dancehall, Reggae Roots, Dub, Rap that were not massively listened to.
His search for his own music style and new tools to express it moved him away from stage and led him to work with music mixture and edition.

As editor and music producer, he became involved with cumbia sonidera in Mexico and worked for important groups like ´´Pesadilla, Maravilla, Kien, Super Changos and La Contra´´. Due to these artists, he got into the new genre and cumbia in Mexico, New York and L.A.
A Colombian cumbia collector living in New York gave him his artist name when he called Gómez “El Hijo de la Cumbia” (Cumbia’s son).

“FreeStyle de Ritmos” was his first album, whose songs were intended to create something different, like all the music influences and feelings that inspired him.
