Ignacio Val was born in La Paz Bolivia, where he was raised at an early age involved in the musical world. At thirteen he began to take singing, guitar and dancing Lessons. Over the years and with little training he began to perform small concerts for his family and friends on different occasions.
Determined to establish an international career, Ignacio moved to Los Angeles, California, where he began attending the academy "Musicians Institute". It is there where he got inspired to create and produce his own sound and start writing songs based on his personal experiences. The artist faced the challenges and obstacles of the music industry and managed to excel thanks to his dedication and perseverance. His songs caught the attention of the audience and the media in South America, especially in Bolivia, where he has achieved great success in radio play and cultivating several followers.
Ignacio's greatest inspiration are his parents, who gave him an infinite amount of love and support. On the one hand the great influence of his father, Jorge Alvéstegui, a successful promoter and producer in music and television, who worked with a variety of artists such as Julio Iglesias, Chayanne, José Luis Perales, and Joan Manuel Serrat. On the other hand, his mother, Tatiana Brozovich, a successful businesswoman who worked in contributing to the development of her country and women rights, used to astonish him continuously for his determination to give a better life to him and his siblings. Before their death, his two parents taught him the importance of having an exceptional work ethic and a tenacity to fight for his dreams, which Ignacio has long since established.
Living in Los Angeles Ignacio has created a space for his music in the North American market, acting in several renown places such as the Microsoft Theater with Latin-international artist Marisela, as well as in the Latin Grammy Street Fair. He has shared the stage with a collection of world artists such as Alejandra Guzmán, David Bisbal, Dulce Maria, Espinoza Paz, La Santa Cecilia and Luis Fonsi.
