That's the reason why his background is, according to him, the main inspiration for his music: "I speak about what I live, about kids, old people, my songs come from the people". And if the rhythm is one of the central elements of his music, his major concern is for the lyrics. He says it best: "My aspiration is to try that in every house, in every car, in every place, my hoarse voice tells people the truth, tells them to dance and to forget the rest".
This global goal resonates in his songs, such as "El Barrio Me Puso Aqui" or "En Punta De Pie". Always referring to his musical persona in the third person, "out of respect", Michael is completely self-taught. "I don't know anything about music, and I don't want to", he explains, adding that he "always had the ability to improvise, to hold a rhythm, to have a flow".
