MOZART LA PARA

Looking at the success that Mozart La Para has accomplished you may think he is an overnight sensation. The Dominican artist has worked relentlessly since he was 12 years old to achieve his dreams. Born on January 31, 1988, in Las Minas, Dominican Republic you can say that Mozart La Para, real name Erickson Fernández, came from the “hood”. His name Mozart comes from writing songs early in his career for other artists, “La Para” (To Stop) is Dominican slang meaning the fear that his opponents would feel when the time came to freestyle face to face with him.

Mozart discovered his passion and talent for music when he was 12 years old and became part of the “underground” hip-hop movement in the Dominican Republic. At age 19 he started doing more “freestyle” and entered different competitions in the Dominican Republic like “La Batalla de los Gallos” sponsored by Red Bull, that although he did not win, it garnered him National attention. Mozart La Para’s style of music can best be described as “Urban Tropical”, a fusion of tropical and urban rhythms. Today he is the leader of the Urban movement in the Dominican Republic. His lyrics are infused with positive messages and a lot of the themes come from his own experiences. To listen to his music is to understand where he comes from.

His mission is to inspire others to follow their dreams and never give up. This was the main topic of the 2015 movie based on his life “Pueto Pa Mi” . The movie shared the struggles of what it is to be an upcoming artist trying to make their dreams come true. An inspiring story that moved the masses in the Dominican Republic breaking box office records. The movie resonated with his fans and became a phenomenon.

Mozart has won six Premios Soberano, the most prestigious awards show in the Dominican Republic. Four years in a row he has won the Premio Soberano del Público, this is the only award that fans get to vote. He was also recognized as Urban Artist of the Year in 2013 & 2016. In 2016 he received the Ministerio de la Juventud award during the Premio a la Excelencia Juan Pablo Duarte (Excellence Award Juan Pablo Duarte) for his contribution to Dominican society through his music.

In the past few years Mozart La Para has gained international success with the hits “Pa’Gozar”, “Llegan lo montro man” and “Toy Enamorao” featuring Sharlene and Nacho (From Chino y Nacho), the single reached the TOP of the Billboard® Tropical songs chart.

The Urban Sensation Is Starting 2018 Strong With The Release
Of His New Track, After Wrapping Up 2017 With A Successful
Run Of More Than 50 Shows Across The Dominican Republic
During The Month Of December
Ready to surpass the great success of his previous hit, 'Bye Bye,' Dominican urban star, Mozart La Para, released the music video for his newest song 'Al Capone' on YouTube last night.
The song was composed by Mozart, while the official video was directed by Cesar Velasquez aka 'Cotur' and produced by 2 Wolves Films. The video was shot in the beautiful Metro Country Club in Juan Dolio, Dominican Republic. 'Al Capone' will be available tomorrow, Friday, January 19, across all digital platforms.
During this visually striking video, Mozart La Para is seen hanging out with other young people whose swagger and style stands out because of their individuality. In the song, Mozart notes that he likes to surround himself with people who share his attitude: “En mi coro todos son calentones” (In my squad, everyone is hot). The fun location allows for moments at the golf court or at the pool, but always highlighting Mozart’s unique vision of success from humble beginnings. He has earned his place by staying true to himself and ignoring negativity: “Lo que tengo es por que me lo merecí” (What I have is because I deserve it), he adds.
“Mi gente! I’m excited to share “Al Capone” with you guys. I was inspired to write the song as soon as I heard it; the beat is infectious. Everybody knows that Al Capone’s swagger and presence were notorious back in the day and I wanted to channel that same attitude in my lyrics. Make sure you check out the official video on my YouTube channel!” – Mozart La Para
In addition to this new track, the prolific lyricist is also busy recording what will become his debut album. Mozart is eager to showcase his versatility and has been working on new sounds and collaborating with international artists and producers that will propel him to another level. As Mozart explains, “it is important to me to try and understand all different cultures around the world”.
Mozart is already starting off the year strong with upcoming shows in Colombia, Canada, and Texas. He also just wrapped up a successful run of more than 50 shows during December across the Dominican Republic.
