Marciano Cantero has always been very proud of the work he carries out with his colleagues, guitarists Felipe and Juan Pablo Staiti, and drummer Jota Morelli.

“I feel chosen. Because in a way, it’s a miracle to have achieved something so good musically speaking and to have been able, at the same time, to hit people. There are a lot of bands that didn’t make it to the Hollywood Bowl and we played there with the G Men, where the Beatles played, and many of the biggest artists in contemporary music history. It was something incredible and when we finished, in the dressing rooms, the people who work there told us that they had not heard the public sing so loud for a long time.”

Marciano Cantero’s collaboration with Bad Bunny and J Balvin

Marciano Cantero’s fame as a composer led him to collaborate for some time with artists such as Bad Bunny and J Balvin.

“They called me on video chat and said: ‘Teacher, thank you for making our adolescence happier! They asked me if I could help them with a song that they couldn’t finish and I like a lot of things, but I like nothing as much as composing a song”, he explained at the time about “Un peso”, the theme that united him with those priests of urban music.

“I was proud that they asked me for help because these people are very skilled with the pen, so I had to live up to the consequences. I think the featuring format is very good because not all of us are good at everything. The combination of two artists always gives something better. I am working on several collaborations right now.”
