Luis Fonsi VIDA on World Tour – Budapest Sport Arena – 2019

Luis Fonsi is coming to Hungary again and is looking forward to his Budapest concert. He gave a successful concert in Budapest Park two years ago. Probably,  the biggest pop hit of the past few years is Despacito and on August, 17, will fill the house head-to-toe swaying in latin music at the Papp László Budapest Sport Arena.

The Latin Grammy award-winning Puerto Rican singer  will give a real large-scale fiesta boosts to the Hungarian audience and encourage them to dance to his hits. As it turned out, the singer will visit a Hungarian gym and a local restaurant before the concert.

The 40-year-old singer-songwriter is one of the best-known performers of Latin music. Until now, over 20 years of his career, his albums have become gold and platinum in many countries  such as: Mexico, Spain, United States, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela), and he has also received the Latin Grammy.

He wrote himself in the history of music in 2017 when Daddy Yankee released his song Despacito, became a world-wide success.

Interview with Hungarian born Szente Szergius  … Sergio Santos at the Remix Retro Disco – Budapest

Preliminary … He is currently the only Hungarian solo artist to promote Spanish and Italian (Latin) songs, leaving them in original mood and message. He was born by the “Hungarian Sea” – Siófok and soon on November, 6. 2018., will be in Las Vegas – USA with a great concert.

Raising some question to speak about from where he started, influences, bonding at his different stages in his life? Just like an open book started speaking about his childhood age up to his present life… A.: „I studied music, learn to play on violin during my childhood, was barely 13 years old and as the youngest competitor won at the National Folk Song Competition. In those days was a founding member of the Siófok City Child Choir, already sang in different foreign languages.”

Jumping from his youth childhood to the age of 18. A.: „After being an active karate athlete, joined the unique specialty of Hungary at the 34th László Bercsényi Depression Reconnaissance Battalion at Szolnok. Received qualifications in parachuting, climbing and as a sniper, and even though I ended my professional career. Still didn’t know where my road gonna lead but didn’t take too long to realize what was missing from my life. My interest increasingly directed towards the professional musician world and went several times to experience the adventures of Spain. Was fully captivated by music and the Mediterranean culture.Then 2000, I reached up my steps, led me to professional musician. There the music and the Mediterranean culture influenced me forever. During my music journey composed my first songs: “Spanish Guitar” by “Isabel” and “Bachatita”.  As going back-and-forth to Spain and Hungary got acquainted with “modern flamenco” and “latin pop” styles. Arriving back to Hungary participated and won in the national talent contest’s grand prize and a  recording contract. This brought fame too and the Hungarians became to known me as a Hungarian singer, singing “modern flamenco” and Latin pop styles and in italian language, that was/is not common here in Hungary at all.” Continued by saying following: Q.: „At capital’s top clubs I was regularly invited and once met the Cuban musician – Hugo Sánchez who invited me to come to Cuba to the Santiago Cuban Caribbean Festival – 2004. It was a great privilege for a Hungarian born to be together with singers from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Jamaica and other Latin countries. I was the only singer from a European country.

The great success brought another public invitation call from Cuba- 2006. Again was the only one from a European country.  My first clip was about my life titled: “lo dejaría todo” My Hungarian and Spanish mix songs were played by the Cuban Radio,and reached the shores of the Mami – USA.

Received an invitation on luxury cruise ship Costa Concordia in 2009. The contract was for two-month to entertain the folks abroad. (My Guarding Angel was beside me … this ship as known sank near the Italian shore) but TG survived.

In 2010, my own production, new album, „Italian Songs”, was uploaded on the Internet. Still in this year of October completed my second film clip with my former companions parachute, when I received alias „Macho” name. This was soon followed by an erotic story spiced own song, „Make love to me” and „Love” (Amami) section. and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDX-6AsxfGs

In 2013… co-Mania … with Majorca band members held a half-a-year Latin show at Iberostar. After my Spanish mission visited Austria and Miami.

At the event was announced the release of Sergio Santos’s latest album and a modern EDM record reminding of  Hungary’s 1956th Revolution by Avanti Ragazzi Di Buda.   It is also the starting point for the Italian Lazio football team.

Santos is already known abroad as an awesome artist, now his main intention is to share the Latin music feeling with the domestic audience.

Also on the spot he sang: Sergio Santos Kívánlak/El Baño – (Enrique Iglesias Cover) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDX-6AsxfGs
