There aren’t too many Latin musicians – or musicians at all, for that matter – whose musical talents are as all-encompassing as Diego Verdaguer’s. He can sing, play the trumpet and play the bandoneon, as well as compose, produce and arrange music. Verdaguer’s musical abilities are his ticket to being a spectacular entertainer, and his concerts are known for being as fun as they are awe-inspiring and musically impressive. Verdguer often tours with his wife, famous Argentinian singer Amanda Miguel, and the star-studded pair is known to perform a huge range of material that spans from romantic duets to traditional mariachi tunes.
Verdaguer was born in Argentina in the 1950s, but he has been performing in Mexico since the early 1980s. His first hit, "Estoy Celoso," peaked at No. 8 on the Latin Pop chart in 1980 and marked the beginning of a decades-long foray into creating successful Latin American music. 2009's "Voy a Conquistarte," written by singer-songwriter Joan Sebastian, marked a reemergence for him into the popular Mexican music scene. Since that hit, Verdaguer has released several other successful recordings, including El Mejor Show Romantico de America, a live recording of one of his and Miguel’s shows. Verdaguer’s musical abilities, as well as his knack for traditional and folk Mexican music, have allowed him to be an enduring presence in his country’s music scene for decades – and they are likely to help him remain popular in the decades to come.
