BACKGROUND INFORMATION on Enrique Infante: Enrique Infante was born in Lima, Perú on April 23rd, 1972.  He is a singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. He co-wrote the music for a Children's theater Play “El Arbol de la Huerta Perdida” (‘The Tree of the lost Orchard’) on 1995 and a year later he toured to Europe with “Los Mojarras” a famous Peruvian fusion band that recorded the soundtrack for a movie "Anda Corre y Vuela"


In the late 1990’s he played guitar for a folk-Andean-fusion band named “Pukakuntur” (‘Red Condor’ in the native Inca language, Quechua). By the end of the same year he moved to Columbus. In 2004, he formed his new project “Dejavu,” a Latin Fusion Rhythms band which lead to the recording of his first album “Abriendo Caminos” in 2006 in Lima, Perú. That CD was released at the Columbus Music Hall on November 11th of the same year.


Within the next few years, Infante was dedicated to promote his music with several concerts in United States, México and Perú, and paying tribute to many Latin-American artists. In 2010 he received el “Premio Orgullo Peruano” (‘Peruvian Pride Award’) as a successful artist living outside Perú. His song “Colors of Columbus” was selected as one of the winners for the ‘200Columbus In Song Contest,’ in celebration of Columbus Bicentennial. In May 5th 2012, Infante released his second album “Canciones Ajenas.”
