About Emir Pabon:
Mexican by birth and Colombian at heart, Emir Pabón was born in Mexico City and began his musical career by attending his father’s concerts. He eventually joined his father’s legendary band Grupo Cañaveral as a percussionist and has served an integral role in the ensemble for the past 23 years. In addition to a percussionist, Pabón is also a producer, businessman, actor and composer.
Pabón began a new phase of his career in 2019, releasing several singles as a soloist including “Echa pa’lante”, which invites listeners to overcome their problems with a positive attitude, as well as “Swing”, a collaboration with the acclaimed reggaeton artists Nacho and Joey Montana.
2020 was also a very important year for Pabón. Grupo Cañaveral celebrated their 25th anniversary and Emir finished up recording his debut solo album – a tribute to his godfather, the Mexican icon Rigo Tovar.
