A Montrealer for nearly 15 years, Colombian multi-instrumentalist Ramon Chicharron advocates the sincere blending of genres and identities as well as the erasing of borders. With his sensitive and committed lyrics, his catchy melodies and his Latin and Caribbean influenced rhythms, Ramon’s music is a true invitation to travel. “Destello de estrellas”, his fourth album, is a mix of electro-tropical sounds and guitars inspired by Congolese soukous. An entry into Ramon’s universe through 12 songs that are inspired by love, the desire to abandon oneself to fate and the connection with nature.

Among the awards received by Ramon Chicharron are the Diversity in Music Award given by the Montreal Arts Council in June 2018, a Félix – Best World Music Album at ADISQ 2021 and Best Album of the Year at the Latin Awards Canada 2021 for the album “Pescador de sueños”.
