Spotlight on Draaco
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—Things are looking real good these days for Georgia native Draaco Aventura. He’s presently putting the finishing touches on his highly anticipated album scheduled to drop in late 2015. “The inspiration for this album comes from my passion for dance. I love just going to clubs and dancing,” stated Draaco. “I find that a lot of times when I go to clubs nowadays there aren’t too many people that actually dance, so I wanted to produce music that is going to focus on dancing.” Considered a world class Latin and ballroom dancer, Draaco has spent several months perfecting his sound which promises not to disappoint. “I produced the music, wrote the songs, and performed them. I intend for each of the tracks to be noticeably different. My sound is ‘genre bending.’ I consider myself a multi-lingual multi-cultural ‘Music Fusion Artist,’” explained Draaco. Already, the single, ‘GoGo Twerk,’ has received well over 10,000 plays on SoundCloud since its recent release. “’GoGo Twerk’ and ‘Meneame’ were written for the man that stands there watching a beautiful woman dancing and needs motivation to ask her to dance,” explained Draaco. “If you have every found yourself staring at a gorgeous woman while she dances, this song is for you.” This talented artist is presently working on a music video to accompany ‘GoGo Twerk.’ Other music videos also planned in the near future. “When people hear my songs I want them to be excited and get ready to start dancing,” explained Draaco. “I really put a lot of work in the lyrics. I write a lot of things guys think, but won’t say. The feedback that I’m getting from women is that they love it and think it’s sexy. They say it makes them feel good. Men enjoy the songs too. They understand what I’m trying to achieve with the lyrics.” Born and raised in Valdosta, Georgia, music has always played an integral part in Draaco’s life. At 17, he joined the United States Army and spent four years serving in Iraq. “Music got me through my childhood and guided me through my adulthood in a healthy way. It helped me ground myself and stay focused. When I was angry or fearful in combat, music was the comforting solution,” stated Draaco. He gained international exposures when he was transferred from Iraq in the military to the United Kingdom. “I continued while I was in the army to do talent shows. While I was over there, I entertained soldiers by singing Gospel and R&B songs,” he explained. Presently, Draaco’s MTV profile routinely ranks within the top 20 most visited and engaged MTV artist. “A lot of people go there to draw inspiration from my bio. There are anywhere from 300 to over 1,000 visits to my MTV artist profile daily,” stated Draaco. “I am unique because my music/brand can appeal to Millennials, younger generations, as well as mature generations. I have a song that will appeal to nearly anyone regardless of their musical taste or background.” Along with singing, Draaco is also an actor. He just completed filming an independent film called "Achilles." He’s also provided voiceovers for six episodes of National Geographic‘s ‘Alerta Aeropuerto!’ The program is due to start airing in the UK in August. In the next five years, Draaco plans to drop two platinum selling full length albums that he produces along with a major record label.
