Biography

Fernando Mangual Vazquez, artistically known as Dálmata, was born on February 29, 1980. The youngest out of three brothers, Dalmata was raised in the place that has become part of his identity and style: Ponce, Puerto Rico.
Dalmata demonstrated a passion for music at a very young age. He studied music theory and also belonged to the chorus at La Escuela de Ponce. Before being involved in reggaeton, his vision was to have a rock band because it was like the trend at the time. Although Dalmata had older brothers, since age 3, he was brought up as a single child, after his brothers were kidnapped. It was not until recently that Dalmata met his older brothers.

Coming from a humble family and upbringing, Dalmata always had to struggle to make ends meet. If he wanted something, he would have to hussle to get what he desired. The fact that before pursuing a music career, he worked in places such as the local toll booth and Sams Club, demonstrates how down to earth Dalmatas character is in reality. As a young kid, Dalmata would spend hours drawing and putting his many ideas on paper. Schoolmates would even pay Dalmata to draw a picture of them, because his pictures were almost an identical replica of the real person.

However, Dalmata knew that he had a unique talent as a musician and began experimenting with the keyboard, and before he knew it, he was mixing two music genres. He would take rock songs and sort of mimic what they were saying to create what he calls a rock parody.
