Who is Quique Mota and how did it all started?
Quique Mota (Ivan Enrique Mota Castillo) is a singer and songwriter born in the city of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He spends his childhood in a populous neighborhood called Guachupita, where he began to show his gifts as a singer.
His parents Luis Mota and Balbina Castillo observed that boy’s restlessness every time he listened to those tropical rhythms of the time, Merengue, Son, Timba, Salsa, the latter reason plus his talent, leaning their taste towards this contagious rhythm.
Quique, influenced by his paternal uncle Ramón Mota “mon trumpeta” began to take the fact of being a vocalist very seriously, taking as a starting point the parties in the neighborhood, singing whenever he had the opportunity and on Fridays at his school, where he was obliged to sing since his companions always liked to hear him sing.
Motivated by great singers such as Ismael Miranda, Ismael Rivera, José Alberto “El Canario” Oscar D’León, Paquito Guzmán, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Tonny Vega, Wilmer Lozano, among others, he already decided at the age of fifteen that that was what I wanted to do professionally. Working on vocalization for a few years and singing at different popular events he gains experience both as a singer and as a songwriter.
The artist is very happy with what he has achieved so far. His goals are to become one of the best exponents of the salsa genre in his country.
