Jalo Nuñez Del Prado (Discos Fantastico)
For the past sixteen years, the work of music archaeologist and collector Jalo Núñez Del Prado has been focused on the exploration, curation and promotion of diverse musical expressions of the Latin American world.

Today, through Discos Fantástico, Ellas Rugen, Discos Horóscopo, among many other record labels that he leads, Jalo has rescued thousands of forgotten works and stories of the tropical spectrum such as cumbia, boogaloo, cha cha chá, descarga, boleros, even rock beat and other gems. His enthusiasm and impetus have led him to also become a musical selector of rarities from the Latin world of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s on stages in Berlin, London, Stockholm, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Barcelona, among other cities around the world. He is currently based in Madrid.
