Horacio Franco

"I am a human being, although that sounds absolutely discredited nowadays. I devote myself to music and I express myself with it."

Horacio was lucky enough to define his vocation at the age of 11. By chance, he realized that music was what he was passionate about and that he had talent for it. At the same age, and without guilt, he also accepted he was gay. Within a humble family, he managed to get ahead with the formula of perseverance, discipline, passion and scruples. He studied in Holland at the age of 17, which allowed him to live within a perfect and functional democracy. He has made music all over the world and for all kinds of public. He has participated with traditional musicians from Mexico, India, Zanzibar, Egypt and Iran. Moreover, he recently disclosed himself as a jazzist. He received the Mozart Medal in 1995 by Austria; the Early Music Award in 2002 and 2003 by the U.S. and the Union of Theater and Music Critics Award in 2004 by Mexico.

His discography is: Mexican music for recorder, Vivaldi Concerti to per Flauto Horacio Franco, Cappella Cervantina and Lienzos de Viento: Horacio Franco and traditional Mams and Zoques musicians from Chiapas.
