Bergman Pazs is potentially one of the biggest gems currently tucked away in the Latin music mines. Pazs has been involved in music for over twenty years, playing, writing and recording in both South America and the United States. Originally from Bolivia, he made his way north in 2002 to further his musical career. Since then, Pazs has released two EPs— Dar Las Caras and Facha.
At 16, Pazs won an award at the Festival De Música Inédita (Festival of Unpublished/Indie Music). He then formed Les Amis, with whom he recorded and enjoyed success in his native Bolivia, and also received the UNICEF Premio Jovén de Cultura (given as the Youth Peace Prize on his Web site) in 2001. Pazs is also no stranger to the top of the OurStage Latin chart. He enjoyed three Top 10 finishes before finally enjoying his first channel win this past March with his song Majadito.
It is impossible not to draw at least some comparison to Latin superstar Juanes who, like Pazs, has been involved in music in more than one country for multiple decades, and who is also involved with causes that strive to spread peace and benefit children. Much of Bergman Pazs’ music is energetic and upbeat with addictive vocal lines, again like Juanes’, but possesses a charm and meaning all its own. Even for those among us who don’t speak Spanish, the mood in the music is undeniably clear. Take a listen and just try not to dance. We dare you.
