Miguel Deparamo: If you put hard work into it, inform people and join up with people who trust in you, you are bound to get there

I studied law, worked in a bank, and now I’m here. There came a day when I realised that I didn’t want to work in a bank for all my life. I had studied music from the age of seven, and l combined work in the mornings with electronic music in the evenings. Then I decided to stage my own show.

I left my secure job at the bank, and I embarked upon a mad idea. People ask you three questions in such situations:


1) Security. And what if things do not work out for you? You have a good job, so why change?


2) Money. How much are you going to earn with this? You had a regular salary at the end of the month.


3) How much unemployment benefit will you be getting?


I had no idea about how to stage a show, and there had been no performers in my family. But I began to ask around, to investigate, to tell everybody about it, even the newspaper seller or the dentist. I didn’t know what was involved in creating a show, and yet I struggled come high tide and low tide. Up until when a representative of the investor rang me to say that he would not be financing the project. So I had to go to the bank, where they granted me an ICO-Entrepreneur loan with which I was able to get my project under way. I had it firmly in my head, and the obstacles didn’t matter to me.


I want to be an international musician because I think that with music I can make people happy. If you believe that you can be good at something, even though you haven’t the faintest idea of the path that lies ahead, even though it’s got nothing to do with your usual work, if you bring determination and hard work into it, inform people about it, join up with people who trust in you, you are bound to get there.
