For Pepe Aguilar to find a place in the world was not difficult. The balance between art and commerce came naturally in an organic way. Informed, of course, with all that means to be a singer and songwriter with global sales of over 12 million records. And being the son of two Mexican icons: Antonio Aguilar and Flor Silvestre.
“Being born during a tour, having studied my craft on the road has given a very particular philosophy to my career,” says Pepe with the same feeling of elegance and honesty that characterize his songs.
“My father and I shared respect for tradition, not just music,” he emphasizes.
“Family traditions, history, certain forms and ways of being that we find essential. My father’s career was a great inspiration to me. Antonio Aguilar risked everything to dignify Mexican music in countries that were not his.”
It is not coincidentally that Pepe Aguilar speaks this way. The singer changed the course of his career with a new production that unites – in many ways – the past, present and future of Mexican music.
Entering the tradition of the MTV Unplugged that has given Latin music so many magical moments, Pepe went to the legendary Churubusco Studios in Mexico City on June 5, 2014 to record a show surrounded by family and friends – and a legendary producer.
