“Music saved my life, it saved me from the streets and helped me get my family ahead,” says Daniel Esquiaqui, best known as Dekko (@soydekko). “Ever since I was little, in my neighborhood we would listen to salsa, champeta, vallenato and many other genres,” says the 22-year-old artist from Barranquilla, Colombia. “It’s nice to represent my city, my country, my continent and my culture,” he adds. “We have a very rich culture, a lot of talent that is reflected in our music.” This #LatinxHeritageMonth, we’re turning up the volume on young artists like Dekko, who share music inspired by their home and heritage for the whole world to hear. 🎶 🌎 🎶 Check out our story to hear the songs that are inspiring Dekko right now.
