Developer Biography

Daniel Leon was born in Montecillo, Michoacan, Mexico on September 28, 1964, but his parents moved to the capital (Mexico city) when he was two years old.

Daniel started singing at the age of 14 when he started hanging out with different musical groups of varied styles, among them, Tropical and Mexican styles, making him a versatile singer.

Although Mexican born, he was always attracted to Colombian music, since this style is played throughout radio stations of the Mexican capital.
