Born in San Luis Potosí, but of Franco-Mexican origins, Leonardo grew up with a bicultural upbringing and was exposed to music from the age of 5.

He studied classical guitar from the ages of 10 to 14, when he moved to Punjab, India to finish his high school studies. There he discovered the sitar, which from that moment on became his priority in music.

Returning from India, he went to live in the Riviera Maya, where he met Bogdan Djukic (violin) and Jesus Mejia (guitar). Together they created Bole, a musical project that led them to perform in Europe, the United States, Canada and Mexico.

After receiving a scholarship for young creators from FONCA in 2013, Leonardo undertakes PRAKASH, his solo project. In 2017 the same institution awarded him a special support scholarship that allowed him to record his first solo album in Madrid.

Since then, PRAKASH has been a personal journey of reconnecting with music as sacred; the desire to expand that connection by creating the space, the experience.
