Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico,
Ignacio Peña got his B.A. in Music Production and Engineering at Berklee College of Music.
In 2001 Peña released his debut album, "El Mundo Al Revés" which earned him rave reviews
from the critics:
"Singer/songwriter Ignacio Peña's first outing, on Universal, is a lovely collection of pop tracks
that evoke everything from Eric Clapton to Oasis. Thanks to thoughtful, well-written lyrics that
never fall into triteness, this manages to be an album without a single throwaway track."

educational experiences that would serve as a tool to better get the message across to a
