His thought-provoking musical creativity has been used to great effect in the soundtracks for films such as Short Sharp Shock (Kurz und schmerzlos), the road movie In July (Im Juli) and the multi-award-winning drama Head-On (Gegen die Wand), the worldwide hit of Turkish-German director Fatih Akin. Sangre y Sal (Blood and Salt), is the third solo album by Chilean singer/songwriter and guitarist Daniel Puente Encina. 11 tracks reflecting the journey of this indomitable artist, able to display even greater originality with every new album he releases. This varied and—most importantly—entertaining repertoire is inspired by the mark left by Africa on the criolla music of Peru, Argentina and (naturally) his home country, Chile. Avant-garde and tradition come together in the creations of this artist who has, since the end of the 90s, become a cult icon amongst trendsetters and fans alike. Born in Santiago de Chile, Daniel Puente Encina, is best known for creating a wide variety of musical projects with very different styles as anti-fascist Pinochet Boys (Santiago de Chile 1984-1987), Niños Con Bombas (Hamburg 1994-1999) —John Lennon Talent Award 1995— and Polvorosa (Barcelona 2000-2011).
