Yordano

The Venezuelan singer and songwriter Yordano is one of Latin music’s best-kept secrets. Throughout his 38-year career, he’s earned praise for his fusions of pop with tropical and romantic elements. During the 1980s and ’90s, his songs became anthems of trysts and breakups for a generation of dreamers in Venezuela, along with Colombia and the Dominican Republic. His lyrics unfold like a short film, and his voice relates his experiences with wisdom and intuition.

 

El cantante y compositor venezolano Giordiano Di Marzo Migani, mejor conocido por su nombre artístico Yordano, es uno de los secretos mejor guardados de la música latina. A lo largo de su carrera de 38 años, ha dejado huella, fusionando el pop con matices tropicales y románticos. Durante las 80’s y 90’s, sus canciones tocaron las fibras sensibles de una generación de enamorados tanto en Venezuela, como en Colombia y la República Dominicana. Su letra se desenvuelve como un cortometraje y su voz relata sus vivencias con sabiduría e intuición.
