Whenever adjectives like "advanced", "crossover" or
"retro-futuristic" are applied on the music circuit, one artist is always included in the list: Daniel Puente Encina.

He mixes the impossible in such an original way that it defies labeling. The work of this brilliant composer arises from a melting pot of the most varied musical influences, with references even from the movie world, for example, in FATIH AKIN’s movies. Since he left his mark on music history by creating extremely varied music projects, Daniel has become a cult symbol in international music scenes.

He has received numerous awards such as the John Lennon Talent Award for NIÑOS CON BOMBAS in 1995 and his song "Behind de mi House" from the album “Radical Car Dance” by POLVOROSA was included on the compilation album "The MTV Spain Best Videos 2004."

In 2012, Daniel recorded his first solo album, "Disparo" (Shot), a triumphant hit in his native Chile and the basis of his highly successful tour of Spain, Germany and Denmark.

Now he presents "Chocolate con Ají", his second work launched under his own name.
