Gepe, also known as designer Daniel
Riveros, became one of the most important voices of the generation by mixing two distinct genres. He has been frequently described as the "new 'guru' of Chilean folk" for combining the sensibilities of 1960s and 1970s Chilean folk (especially the music of Víctor Jara) with a minimalist electropop sound. His particular style caught almost immediate the attention of the music press. Throughout his career, he has performed in huge festivals and events including the Latin American Music
Conference, SXSW, Lollapalooza Chile, Vive Latino
in Mexico, and the televised Viña del Mar Festival.
