Huecco U.S. Tour 2013 in Washington, D.C.
Spanish singer Hueco will be touring the East Coast this summer to present his new album Dame vida (Give me life).
Huecco is a very particular artist who mixes rock, flamenco from his spanish roots and latin music. An in-your-face flavour cocktail of metal, punk, cha-cha, rumba flamenca, bolero and ska. A party to move the hips and mosh depending on each song. This special profile has made him play with artists so different like Sepultura or Bad Religion in a Festival and 2 weeks later open for Carlos Santana in Germany. Billboard said in 2009 that
Huecco is to latin music what Gogol Bordello to balcanic music.
Gold record in 2006 with his debut (40,000 albums sold), he also sold 280,000 ringtone downloads with his first single Pa’ mi guerrera with a style created by him called rumbatón, a medley o rumba and reggaeton produced by the Grammy winner KC Porter.
In 2008, he wrote the anthem against the domestic violence, Se acabaron las lágrimas (Tears got over), which was Platinum Digital Album (45,000 ringtone downloads) and whose royalties he donated to the Fundación Mujeres in Spain. In 2011, he recorded the Dame vida album in L.A. produced by Grammy winner Thom Russo. He gathered an all-star for his Dame vida videoclip with soccer world champions Sergio Ramos and David Villa, and other players like the brazilian Daniel Alves (FC Barcelona), the argentinian Kun Agüero or the last european champions Thomas Müller and Philipp Lahm (Bayern Munich).
Huecco has a non-profit called Fundación Dame Vida that works to distribute soccket footballs, which have generators inside them to produce electricity when kicked, to energy-impoverished areas. The sale royalties of the album and the song will be donated to make 500 balls which accumulates energy when kicked by the kids in poor communities.
