Leonardo Prakash

Music & Arts

Born in San Luis Potosí, but of Franco-Mexican origins, Leonardo grew up with a bicultural education and exposed to music since the age of 5.

He studied classical guitar from the age of 10 to 14, when he moved to Punjab, India to finish his high school studies. There he discovered the Sitar, which from that moment became his priority in music.

Returning from India, he went to live in the Riviera Maya, where he met Bogdan Djukic (violin) and Jesus Mejia (guitar). Together they created Bole, a musical project that led them to perform in Europe, the United States, Canada and Mexico.

After receiving a scholarship for young creators from FONCA in 2013, Leonardo undertook PRAKASH, his solo project. In 2017, the same institution granted him a special support grant that allows him to record his first solo album in Madrid.

Since then, PRAKASH has been a personal journey of reconnecting with music as something sacred; the desire to expand that connection by creating the space, the experience.
