Sharing stages with artists including Matanza, Chancha Via Circuito, Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto, and Uproot Andy.
The magazine THUMP stated that Biomigrant ‘Recovers, with his sound, the heart of Central and South America, in which wind instruments and African drums are the protagonists, brought into a downtempo style inviting rhythms and songs from throughout the world into the dance.’
Live, he performs solo, as well as with special guest musicians such as the Mexican percussionist Arnulfo Mancera, and the Colombian singer Criss Cortés.
