Fragancia a.k.a Fraga (former DLG member), celebrated his official album release party at the Copacabana earlier this year.
SoFoke (say it slowly to get the subliminal), features “Antidoto y Veneno”, “Quisiera Saber”,” Mirala”, and “Saoko” featuring Sex Appeal. A mix of urbana, salsa and merengue with modern, memorable lyrics and catchy melodies is what you’ll get with this project! With his overall amount of experience and desire for success, Fragancia looks forward to making a lasting impact on fans around the globe. “I poured all my musical passion into this album for them to enjoy and sing for many years to come. I also want this production to be an inspiration to all up and coming artists to dare to be themselves and go for their goals” says the musician.
Fraga was born on October 10th in the Dominican Republic and raised in Miami, Florida. At an early age, it was apparent that Fragancia had a deep connection with music. He decided to pursue a music career and moved to the Big Apple. Here, he began to work on his skills as a performer by free styling and “battling” (rapping) on the street corners of his Bronx neighborhood. Fraga then moved on to countless open-mike nights in East Coast nightclubs, granting him exposure to the right people like renowned producer, Sergio George. In 1996, Sergio George created the urbano salsa group, DLG, giving Fraga the ultimate boost to his musical career. The popular Latin trio came on to the music scene with great force, incorporating a Latin-infusion of world music that at the time went unmatched. DLG had frequent top-ranking hits such as ” No Morira”, “La Quiero a Morir”, “Juliana”, and “Todo Mi Corazon”. They toured throughout Latin America, Asia, and the Caribbean and garnered numerous awards and recognitions, such as being nominated for both Grammys & Latin Grammys, as well as taking home a Latin Billboard award.
After challenging and exhausting years of hard work, the group decided to amicably split and pursue solo careers. Fraga’s fiery passion for music and performing grew stronger than ever and subsequently resulted in collaboration with international artists like Yolandita Monge, Luis Enrique, D.O.S.E. of Fulanito, Servando & Florentino, Isaac Delgado, Sandy & Papo MC, and many others. With a multitude of experience under his belt, Fragancia has decided that now is the right time to embark on a solo career that can optimistically take him on the right course to stardom!
