About the Artist

Jonathan Acosta is a Venezuelan singer and songwriter, who also plays the Venezuelan cuatro and the violin. From 1989–2001, he received musical training at the Conservatory of Music Vicente Emilio Sojo and participated for 12 years in the National System of Symphonic Orchestras of Venezuela as a violinist. In September of 2018, Acosta launched his new musical tour “¡Vamos Paisano!” in the United States, after the resounding success of his motivational project “#ANIMOVENEZUELA” with which he performed nationally and internationally. His music is genuine, versatile, and rich in rhythms and melody. His compositions have high motivational content, which has made him worthy of recognition and international awards. Acosta has recorded two albums—one with the Bahareque group (“Si así llueve, que no escampe”) and another that was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award in 2017 (“Pido Permiso”). He recently became the first singer-songwriter to perform in a symphonic concert honoring the Venezuelan musician Simón Díaz. Throughout his career, he has performed in numerous symphonic and popular concerts and has been invited to participate in musical events internationally to Italy, Spain, Colombia, and Panama.
