Entrevista a Alx Veliz

Canadiense de padres Guatemaltecos, se ha convertido en todo un suceso musical con el sencillo ¨Dancing Kizomba¨. La canción no había salido oficialmente en Febrero y ya el público canadiense lo tiene en los primeros lugares de popularidad.

Alx creció muy cercano a la comunidad hispana. A pesar de haber nacido en Toronto se identifica como un canadiense hispano. Alx dice que la música la lleva en la sangre, su familia por parte de su mamá se caracterizó por tener cantantes y compositores. Influencia que lo llevó a iniciar su carrera musical desde muy joven. Cantaba en la iglesia o tocaba el bajo y la bateria.

Inicio su carrera profesional con productores de artistas locales. Cuenta que la canción Dancing Kizomba surgió de una manera inesperada. La escribía para otro artista pero al ver los resultados de la canción decidió aventurarse en este estilo musical.

Contento por el apoyo que ha recibido. Reconoce que durante su trayectoria aprendió que no se trata de ofrecer sólo lo que el mercado quiere, sino de explorar cosas diferentes, y que en este caso es lo que sus raíces Latinas le ofrece. Canta en español e inglés y lo inspira el amor, desde enamorarse por primera vez hasta el desilucionarse, todo puede convertirse en canción.

Actualmente tiene un contrato con Universal Music y espera tener su disco en el mercado este año. Alx, aconseja no tener miedo de sus raíces. Quiere ser un ejemplo para la comunidad hispana y demostrar que cualquier persona puede cumplir sus sueños, ¨Si eres constante, tarde o temprano todo llega¨.

Alx Veliz is a second generation Canadian and the son of immigrant parents from Guatemala, who has become a musical sensation with his hit song “Dancing Kizomba.” Veliz says the song had not been officially released when his Canadian fans started sharing and adding it to several online playlists.

Veliz has been a part of the Hispanic community since he was a child. Despite being born in Toronto, he identifies as a Hispanic-Canadian. Veliz said that music runs through his veins; his mother’s side of the family is made up of several singers and composers. He felt inspiration to launch his musical career at an early, age —he gained experience by singing at his church and playing his bass guitar and drums.

He started his professional career with the help of producers and local artists and he said that the song “Dancing Kizomba” started out in an unexpected way. He was actually writing the song for another artist when he realized that he wanted to keep it as his own.

Grateful for the support he has received so far, Veliz acknowledges that throughout his career he has learned that the music business is not about only offering what the market wants—it’s also about exploring different sounds and rhythms. In this case he believes his Latin roots give him the advantage. Veliz sings in both Spanish and English and he is inspired by love. Falling in love, and even becoming disappointed at love. He said that anything can quickly turn into a new song.

Currently, Veliz is signed to Universal Music and hopes to have his CD available this year. He would like to become an example to the Hispanic community and prove that anyone can accomplish their dreams. “If you are constant, it will arrive sooner or later.”
