About

During his visit to Bogota for his “On The Run” tour, Paul McCartney met up with musician Chucho Merchán who campaigns to stop bullfighting in Colombia. From Panorama:

Few Latin American musicians can boast such admirable and enviable accomplishments as Colombia’s Chucho Merchán. Pedro Aznar —the talented bass player who worked with Charly García and David Lebón to get Serú Girán off the ground during Argentina’s dictatorship— can perhaps claim to have played with Sting and Pat Metheny. And yet Bogotá-born Merchán, despite being Colombia’s most successful rock session musician, has received very little attention or gratitude from the media, who remain for the most part unaware of the bassist’s work with the likes of George Harrison, Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music), and Pete Townshend (The Who), to name only a few.

But beyond the rock-and-roll and flashy stars that twinkle on his resume, Chucho Merchán is a great social activist who, thanks to his lack of interest in publicity, has garnered little attention in Colombia. In 1986, he achieved something very few managers have ever accomplished by convincing some of Britain’s finest musicians to perform in a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London to raise funds for the survivors of the tragic Nevado del Ruiz volcano eruption. […]

He currently heads a foundation in Colombia that fights to ensure proper respect and treatment for animals; this work has earned him fame and respect. In fact, Paul McCartney has supported Chucho’s cause worldwide, as seen during the former Beatle’s visit to Colombia. […]
