My sister is not in music now because of work, but she is always aware of us. She is supervising because she is part of the family and also because music runs through her veins. Although she does not accompany us with her presence, she always motivates us.
We continue with the same spark, with the same swing. We re-recruited almost all the musicians who have been with us for years. They already know the essence and touch of Sonido 2000.
Recontra sounds like Sonido 2000. We’re still the same. The vocalist Leslie (Becorena), who takes my sister’s place because I can’t say she’s replacing her, is very professional, she resembles Cheryl’s voice, she has charisma. People think she is my family. What’s more, the guitarist also looks a bit rocker like ‘Tulín’. It’s not that we were looking for it, it’s pure coincidence.
– Is music new to you or were you already involved with the orchestra before?
This is not new to me. Since I was very young I have been in the logistics, administrative part. I’ve been at the ticket office, I’ve been a bartender and even a bottle rack. I have been 1,000 trades.
– Did you also inherit the artistic side?
I have always loved dancing. I entered support, I liked it and I stayed. Now my role in Sound 2000 is not just dancing, I’m also singing.
– But you already had that gift?
Yes, I sang, but not at my best.
– Are you taking singing lessons?
Yes, in a personalized way. Mr. Javier, who at some point shared the stage with my father, is advising me on many things regarding singing (…). I believe that what is inherited is not stolen.
I have grown up in a musical world and music is in my blood. For me it is a challenge, I do not limit myself.
– Who made you the proposal to debut as a singer?
Just as I started to dance from one day to the next, I said: “Normal, I’ll do it, as long as it’s the family business. If it is to grow and improve, for whatever”. I’m going to be very honest with you
I never thought I would be on a big stage with the group Sonido 2000. I always said: “I’m going to manage my brothers” (as a manager). I saw myself on that side, not on a stage.
– So, what is the most difficult for you to be the new face of Sonido 2000?
Well, dancing for me is normal, but grabbing the microphone is still like we’re there, we’re making progress. It will be a reason for you to see me this Saturday the 25th on the Cruise of Love and on the Huaralino. And if they come early, they eat a free juane. It’s for the first 300 people.
