He founded Teatro Matita in 2002 and his shows E Beh? (2002) and Little Night Tales (2003) have been performed at festivals worldwide. He is founder of the HISTeRIA Festival, a fusion of musical, theatrical and social events.
Musician, composer, singer and player of multiple different instruments, from a young age he began travelling the world, collecting sounds from different kinds of music. Joan Baez called him “the best Chilean singer-songwriter of his generation”, thanks to his technical skill and unique and heterogenous style, inspired by Latin American music, European folklore, jazz and rock. His songs are both personal and political, with his powerful performances the highlight of his concerts. He has travelled all over the world giving concerts and has released six albums. The last, Mil 500 vueltas (2015), involved important collaborations with Joan Báez and the Uruguayan Jorge Drexler.
