Biography

Paulito FG, aka Pablo FG, aka Paulo FG, aka Pablo Alfonso Fernández Gallo, is one of the central figures of Timba and one who will definitely receive the same type of in-depth treatment we’ve given NG La Banda and Charanga Habanera. In the meantime we can provide you with a short discography, an interview, and a short introduction to this fascinating artist and some of the phenomenal musicians who have contributed to his large body of recorded work.

Paulito’s band, the Élite, has always been exceptional, but in 1997 he assembled the truly amazing collection of musicians who collaborated to create one of Timba’s crown jewels, Paulito’s masterpiece, “Con la Conciencia Tranquila”. This album is definitely the starting point for those getting into Paulito’s music for the first time. It’s his best, and also one of the best, if not the best of the entire Timba genre.

In the early years, Paulito had tours of duty with Dan Den and Adalberto Álvarez, but it was in Opus 13 that he met up with Juan Ceruto, who would be his musical director and arrange almost all of his compositions throughout the 90’s. Ceruto, a saxophonist gifted with absolute pitch and a Mozartean ability to conceive entire arrangement in his head without the help of a piano or computer, is also a perfectionist in terms of intonation and phrasing in the horn section.
