He caught the attention of Spanish songwriter Joaquin Sabina, who invited him to Madrid to work with a variety of artists.

He has also worked with other artists, notably Waka Waka, She Wolf and Did It Again’for Shakira, as well as Carlinhos Brown, Joaquín Sabina, Ketama, Kevin Johansen, Marlango, Pedro Guerra and Rosario.

Most recently, he worked with Latin Grammy winners Caetano Veloso, Julieta Venegas, Mon Laferte and Natalia Lafourcade, among others.

Drexler is playing extensive global tours with more than 150 shows in 24 different countries for his last album in 2017 – mainly in Latin America, North America and Europe.

He was signed to Sony Music US Latin in 2019 and will release his 14th studio album this year.

“I can’t wait to share my new music with the world and I hope it will be possible to go on tour again soon.”
