My name is Wilredo Medina Torres, AKA (Chikiz). I was born in San Juan de Puerto Rico, where I graduated from Juan Ponce de Leon High School and later received a certification as a craftsman. My passion for music manifested itself very early, when I was inspired to created songs by hitting cans, sticks and bottles. As a teenager, I ventured into percussion and singing, under the influence of greats like Hector Lavoe and Ismael Rivera. Later on, I shared the stage with great musicians such as Lalo Rodriguez, Eddi Santigo, Hector Tricoche, Alexis and Fido and many others of different musical genres. Recently, I have participated as an urban singer in different places and festivals.
