We had the good fortune of connecting with DIAGO and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi DIAGO, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
From a very young age the world of art caught my attention, I asked my parents to take me to dance and music classes. I have always been attracted to everything creative. When I was 12 I auditioned for a reality show in Mexico City for children who sang. I was selected and from that moment my career began and I decided that I wanted to do this for the rest of my life. I have continued to create ever since. For me it is very important to always be surrounded by creativity and express my emotions through it. Singing and creating is like breathing for me. I do it all the time even unconsciously.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I started singing covers when I was little and then I was in a boy band that trained me in dancing and singing. At the age of 15 I began to compose my own songs and I kept improving. A couple of years later I made my first song for another big artist, ANAHI (Mexican singer) and later more songs for soap operas.

Over time I started working on my solo project and it took time to discover what I wanted to tell the world. I began to work with music and sounds that have accompanied me all my life, folk music from my hometown to the music that sounds today. I think that to sing something I need to feel it from the lyrics to the music. if I had to define my style it is Pop, urban, experimental.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I think Miami has much to offer. Without a doubt, I would take my bff to Crandon Park, which has excellent natural landscapes and a very nice beach.

Speaking of food, I would go to eat at Boia De, which is one of my favorite restaurants along with Sherwoods.

I would go to dowtown for a walk to discover new places. I think dowtowns of all cities are always in constant movement and therefore always have new things to offer.

I think the rubell museum is one of the best museums we have in the city.

to go out dancing and for drinks I would definitely go to Saxony at the Faena Hotel, Las Rosas and The Anderson.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
To my parents and siblings who since the beginning support my art with love and kind. And to all the independent artists working hard to be listen. I believe in you keep going and don’t stop!
