Daniel Riveros, otherwise known as Gepe, has become one of the most well-known artists in the Latin indie music scene with a revolutionary vision of pop music that mixes traditional Chilean folk music, a touch of electronic pop and hints of hip hop. Gepe has continually impressed audiences throughout Latin America with his dynamic live performances, even covering Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” in Spanish for the film Sugar.
In 2010, Gepe Released his latest album Audiovision to wide critical acclaim, causing a growing buzz around his upcoming South by Southwest appearance. Many including the Austin Vida interns are impatiently waiting to see a rare glimpse of the Chilean pop artist on U.S soil. Gepe will be performing March 18 at Prague and March 19 at Maggie Mae’s.
