Having amassed more than 20 years of experience as a amusician, singer, dancer and producer, Francisco Bayon had championed his sound with influences form heavy metal to classical latin. After studying in Cuba he amassed amounts of first-hand experience of studying and performing with local artists.
Francisco uses all the instruments typical of Carribbean music, such as bongos, congas, timbales, guiro etc taking the instruments out of their original settings bringin a fresh sound to his music.
“When I Call You” came about after an accidental Skype call whilst listening to past productions. This just goes to show the creativity that artists such as Francisco incorporate into their music.
Francisco’s music is a wholesome listening and physical experience making you want to sing, dance and express your emotions. Through this highly energetic and captivating vibe he developed the indentifying phrase “Sing it. Dance it. Feel it.”
To name a few, Francisco has worked with the famous Italian singer Donatella Rettore and the label Universal making a cover of her popular song Splendido Splendente. The salsa/bachata festivals Francisco has taken part in involve various Caribbean artists well known on the Latin scene, such as Joe Veras, Jc, Pedrito Calvo Jr. and many more. He has also worked with Black Diamond studio in Genoa, and various studios in Milan; as for productions, he works with Yannior Farres (pianist for Elito Revé y su Charangón orchestra) and El Trinitario (singer/percussionist of La Maxima 79 orchestra)
Though he has a lot of experience in the Latin/Cuban areas of music, he is far beyond the clichés of the genres, leaning towards the likes of Pitbull, Marc Anthony and Jenifer Lopez.
Francisco is a highly self proficient artist, often nicknamed ‘The Manager’, as he has his own recording studio and arranges his own empowering tracks. Living up to his nickname he likes to be his own boss working almost autonomously. He also isn’t linked to any particular label which gives him more control over his art and leaves labels fighting over him.
