Alejandro Filio

Born March 13, 1960 in Mexico City as Alejandro Gómez Herrera, Filio began his musical career as a composer at the age of 16. His music bridges borders, extending across the Spanish speaking world as he shares his poetry through song.

Facebook PromoFilio’s first performances took place in the 80s in bars across Mexico City though he soon was participating in Festivals and television programs while remaining independent and reaffirming his commitment to song, defending the image of the “troubador” folk singer, guitar in hand.

Since the 90s, Alejandro Filio has defined the true goal of a professional “troubador,” singing in cultural circuits across the country while also starting up his own recording company, Lundra Produccions created in 1998 by Filio and Maru Bayardo. To date, Alejandro Filio has seventeen albums, as well as two DVDs.  Each of these achieves the goal, he explains, of the true “troubador” in interpreting popular feelings by playing to the most sensitive fabric of a public who today recognizes him as one of the most important singer/songwriters in the Spanish speaking world.   (Biographical information from: Alejandro Filio)
