Solovino

Agustín “Aluche” Ballesteros is the person who gives life to the on-air character of “Solovino.” Born in Mexico City, Aluche is very passionate about his work, talking from behind a microphone since 1998. Aluche is also a musician – he knew he was destined to play music from a very young age. He comes from a family of musicians and is the second of three brothers. His family is the most important thing in his life and his greatest pride are his three little daughters.

 

Solovino is the name of a character who is cheerful, flirty, funny, controversial and very much in love. He is always happy to toast to life. He is always singing and screaming trying to get a smile out of radio listeners through La M 103.7 FM.

 

Aluche “Solovino” is participating in Dancing with our Community Stars to raise funds for the Merito Foundation, a charity he is proud to represent.
