Andrés Cepeda Visits Berklee
Please see the events listing for upcoming events.
Andrés Cepeda’s career took off with the Latin rock-pop band Poligamia. Cepeda began his solo career after the group disbanded and has since recorded ten albums under his own name. He has been nominated for eight Latin Grammy awards and in 2013 won Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for Lo Mejor Que Hay En Mi Vida.
Since his first solo production in 1999, I Know How to Die, recognition has come hand in hand with each of his works. In March 2001, he launched his second production, El Carpintero. In 2002, he published what would be the first DVD of a Colombian artist recorded live, Siempre Queda una Canción, performed at the Teatro Colón in Bogotá; and in 2003, Canción Rota, his third album, was released.
In 2005, Cepeda presented his work Para Amarte Mejor, an album that scored three number-one songs on Colombian radio. Only two months after its release, the album went gold and platinum for its sales in Colombia and Latin America. In 2007, he released a reissue of Para Amarte Mejor, including two new songs by maestro Jorge Luis Piloto: “Pronóstico” and “Si fuese mi Enemigo.” These songs gave him international recognition and earned him a 2007 Latin Grammy in the Best Male Pop Album category.
