One of the most influential music critics,
Drago Bonacich was born
and raised in
Chile.
A proud member of the U.S.
National Academy of Recording Arts &
Sciences, Drago started hosting radio
shows at a young age mostly influenced
by American hard/rock, British punk and
post-disco music, making himself a music
addict before becoming a top-rated
entertainment enthusiast and one of the
most reliable critics. This real music lover
has produced several successful radio

and tv
shows. Profiles and reviews
holding his signature can be found in
music magazines, web sites and internet
platforms such as Pandora, Google Play
Music, Rolling Stone, Artist Direct (UBL),
All Music Guide, Spotify and worldwide tv
networks MTV and VH1. Drago became
the first one supporting
singer Shakira's
crossover in the U.S., introducing
t.A.T.u.
and
Tokio Hotel to America and later Katy
Perry and Lady GaGa to Latin America,
anticipating
the sucess of Daddy Yankee,
Juanes
and Julieta Venegas. He was the
first one writing about
Joss Stone, RBD
(Rebelde) in the U.S., the 2006 Latin
American punk-pop revival and the
Soda
Stereo reunion tour in 2007, among many
other achievements, turning into one of
the most devoted
and reliable promoters
of alternative music.
In 2008 he became a
Spanish-language podcaster pioneer.
He
is also the leading force behind the
award-winning
Satélite Musical, founded
in 1998 as a web page holding charts and
music news
and later turning into one of
the most popular music
ezines. An
enriching experience which is far from
over.
