Biography

Mexico City, Mexico (1993 – present)

Fratta is a musician from Mexico City, Mexico whose style is influenced by fusion, electronics, jazz often played in a semi-acoustic manner.

In 1993, with the release of Romántico Desliz (nominated as record of the year by specialized critics), Fratta proved that pop music is not necessarily opposite to quality and intelligence.

With a touch of funky Jazz and electronics, Fratta creates a fine crafted music, with a quite particular seal that wraps us within its textures. It is definitely difficult to define the musical style we are speaking about, so Harta Fidelidad con Sonido Etéreo, a game of words with the translation for “High Fidelity with Stereo Sound”, is how Fratta explains his work. The cold sounds of electronic music (samplers, sequencers, drumboxes and keyboards) are warmed by the presence of top musicians of the Mexican scene such as Ely Guerra, Julieta Venegas, Rita Guerrero, Sasha Sokol, Rubén Albarrán of Café Tacvba, Héctor Page, Sr. González, María Urtuzuástegui, Eugenia León, Magos Herrera and Julio Díaz, among others whom, along with Fratta, build a Babel Tower with sounds from many countries,and the enigmatic, yet intricate, Mexico City.

In 2003 with his fifth record, Motel, the accumulated on-stage and studio experience is capitalized in a record that reflects perfectly the turn of the century, and the zillion ways in which it can be seen or heard. Looking back: Fratta’s breakthrough in the Mexican musical stages began in 1988. After a rather classical he turned to electronic instruments by the time he was in College, studying Architecture and graphics.
