Daniel Puente Encina, songwriter, guitarist and singer was born in Santiago de Chile.
His first, anti-fascist New-Wave-Post-Punk-band Pinochet Boys, a symbol of the revolution in Chile, has been acknowledged and honoured in various books and documentaries. Due to their rebellious performances, the teenage-band would be unofficially forced to leave the country by the Chilean military regime in 1987. Daniel found his inspiration in West Berlin and then moved to Hamburg, which resulted in a very successful new Latin Jazz-Ska-Punk-Rock-Band: "Niños Con Bombas”. He published two albums, "De Tiempo en el Momento de la Explosión" and "El Niño" and soon received the "John Lennon Talent Award" in 1995. "Niños Con Bombas" split up in 1999 in Los Angeles.
Since 2000, Daniel started to perform under the name "Polvorosa" in Barcelona. In 2004, Daniel released the album “Radical Car Dance”. The song "Behind de mi House" was included on the compilation album “Los Videos Mas Espectaculares" by MTV Spain. In 2012, Daniel recorded his first solo album, "Disparo" (Shot). In 2014, Daniel published "Chocolate con Ají" (Chocolate with chili), the second work launched under his own name. In 2016 he presents his new animated music video "Freire", created by the team of Chilean illustrator Cristián Montes Lynch. Many of his songs form part of the soundtracks of Turkish-German film director Fatih Akin's movies, such as "Short Sharp Shock", "In July", and his multi award-winning film "Head-On".
