Diego Fragnaud, Paraguayan roots and rising youth talent – Music

Diego Fragnaud, the son of two South American immigrants: a Paraguayan father and a Peruvian mother, is participating in the North American reality show Song House Live, a contest where every week each participant has to write and compose a song. The artist, who claimed to be a lover of Paraguayan traditions, also wants to conquer the hearts of this land.

With a natural talent for singing, the young Diego Fragnaud used digital tools to make himself known, as he gained a large number of followers on social networks such as Tik Tok, Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook. His most viral video was a cover of the song When I Look At Youby Miley Cirus, which has more than 15 million views on TikTok.

This cover even caught the attention of Cyrus herself, who contacted him by direct message from Instagram to find out where he lived. “Since the song talks about a kaleidoscope, Miley gave her that as a gift in a symbolic way, but it really means something very important,” said her father Eduardo.

After that success, Diego entered the studio to record said cover at InTune Recording Studio with fellow Paraguayan Dani Cortaza who worked on the sound and mixing, produced musically and played the guitar. In addition, Willy Suchar contributed sounds of piano, synthesizers and Rhodes, among other North American musicians.

Everything that happened since Fragnaud uploaded the cover to TikTok made him want to dedicate himself fully to music. In this sense, he has already recorded other covers of songs such as Say, by Ruel, Hold me while you wait, by Lewis Capaldi and Falling, by Harry Styles, and is currently promoting his original song Letter to Japan.

Fragnaud mentioned that with his interpretations he seeks to “provide nostalgia, evoke emotions” by transmitting an “effusion” of himself. So after that video he teamed up with the Los Angeles-based studio Prophecy Productions, directed by Brett Pemberton, to record an EP with his own songs that will soon be released.
