Who is Manuel Medrano?
The story of Manuel Medrano begins when he failed a school year and, as “punishment”, received a guitar. From the age of 16, he began writing songs, which motivated him to start a career as a solo artist.
For several years he played in bars in Bogota while composing his songs, which, years later, made him popular at the national level. Manuel Medrano composes romantic music that he calls pop-cast because it doesn’t come from a specific genre, but from various influences of Latin American singer-songwriters.
