About Estudios Audión, a family legacy.

Today, the legacy is inherited by their two offspring, Gonzalo “Crudo” Villagra and Alvaro Villagra (Grammy-award winning, Producer/Engineer), who grew up perfecting the craft of Audio Recording, Mixing and Mastering. 

In 2014, Gonzalo “Crudo” Villagra, the youngest son, in tribute to his father, re-opened Estudios Audión.
