Diego

Diego is an indie band from Slovakia formed in 2004. Their first single „I Know Myself“ was released in 2005 and was followed by the eponymous debut album „Diego“, entirely in English. Both the single and the album were very successful and “I Know Myself” was one of the most played songs on an alternative Radio FM.

The band, hitherto composed of Diego K (lead vocals, guitar), Diego S (bass, vocals), Diego V (guitar, vocals) and Diego C (drums), was joined by a new member, Ali Ali (violin, keyboard, vocals), in the spring of 2009. Ali enriched Diego more than just visually – the combination of her violin and keyboard backup for the guitar impressed both the fans and the band so much, that Ali joined the recording of Diego’s second album “Peripheries”. Much like the first album, also the second one is in English. Peripheries was voted the Album of the year 2009 in the alternative music Radio_Head Awards.

Besides numerous concerts alone or with other Slovak bands, Diego supported various foreign bands such as the Editors or Zita Swoon.

Diego is currently recording their third album, the first single of which, called What Now? was launched in June 2016 and was very well received, shooting to Number 1 on the alternative Radio FM. Some of the new songs from the upcoming album, which is expected in the Autumn 2016, will be introduced on a popular Slovak Grape Festival in August.
