The singer and performer Rommel Ocampo celebrates its 20 years in the art with good news.

Rommel Ocampo Flores, singer and performer known for his career in the popular group Macolla, celebrates his two-decade career with the presentation of his new album "20 years of Authenticity" and with a concert "Independent", to be held in the Main Hall of the National Theatre on Friday September 13th. In the concert will participate groups like Grupo Tabú, Camerata Bach, Mariachi Garibaldi, Maria Laura Ocampo, El Robotico among others.

"It is a challenge and the start of new goals to accomplish," Ocampos said to the media when he was asked what this concert meant to him. He explained that this event will be a night of a lot of pressure, but he is enjoying it from now. The audience attending the presentation will enjoy a tour of the different facets and genres that has experienced this Nicaraguan singer during his 20 year career with different groups, that he has created and integrated with other artists.

For Ramon Rodriguez, Director Ruben Dario National Theater, this concert will be a project that will encourage other songwriters and Nicaraguan soloists to start building their own careers as Rommel did. Rodriguez also recognized the production work, since you can see that all the preparations for the event are being made with passion and order, which no doubt will result in a successful concert for artistic and musical ability of this young artist, Rodriguez said.

Lucrecia Amador, executive producer of the event, said that this project is the result of months of work of visits to different companies. As a result of this was achieved sponsorship of many institutions, since the proposal has been well received in the different companies visited. The expectation for the event is to completely fill the theater, because what feeds the performers are the applauses, said Amador; at the concert will be singing with his father the 13 years old singer María Laura Ocampo, who is following the footsteps of his parent.

Tickets for the concert are on sale at the National Theatre, priced at US$15, US$10 and US$5.
