Costa Rica / United Kingdom

A Costa Rican songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has found a new home and creative haven in Oxford, UK. With a knack for mixing Latin roots and pop sounds, Patiño’s music is a vibrant fusion of tradition and modernity. Patiño has a deep admiration for his Latin American heritage, writing songs that traverse the tropical realms of bolero, cha cha chá, cumbia, and reggaeton. Currently represented by Sony Music Publishing and distributed through The Orchard.

“Londres” is the name of Patiño’s most recent EP, released in September 2023. A collaboration with British musician Jim Lawton that resulted in a harmonious collection of tracks that continue to push the boundaries of Patiño’s latin pop fusion. The release has been supported with shows at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters and Oxford’s Tap Social Taproom, as well as festivals in the UK (Wilderness, Camp Bestival, Brighton Fringe), Sweden (Future Echoes) and Lithuania (Akaciju Aleja).
