When talking about the difficulties he has encountered along the way and how you have resolved them, the musician revealed “The difficulties are many closed doors, the lack of support, since I started with the flamenco part, and it is a genre that is not very consumed here in Pachuca, therefore as it is a genre that people do not fully know, they do not understand and appreciate the part of art in the genre, therefore many people have not believed in what I do, I have faced to many people saying that it is not something that impacts, something that is boring or that it is something without much importance.”
“The only way I have solved them is by believing in myself more and continuing, knocking on more doors, seeking support for independent talents. Organizations, groups, acquaintances and friends who have guided me and taking all the opportunities that arise, no matter how small or big.”
