When I was 13 and I started playing the guitar, I knew I would be a musician forever.
I grew up surrounded by music, both in my house, where everyone sings, plays an instrument or is simply music lovers. As in Newton College, where art is a fundamental part of academic training, and where I had the privilege of being a student of the great Edgar Valcárcel in the International Baccalaureate of Music course.
Then continue studying with various private teachers such as Jorge Madueño Romero, Monica Mestanza and the Béla Bartók Institute.
At school, from an early age I was part of bands and choirs, playing various instruments, such as drums, bass, percussion, until one day, at thirteen years of age, when a friend lent me his guitar for a moment. I will never forget the feeling I had when ripping their strings, feeling their sound of metal and wood; Dark and very clear. adrenaline, emotion, subtlety and intensity, all at once.
In 1994 together with friends musicians, we formed the band El Berde Borde. From that moment and during the following years the bands, artists and musical associations would follow each other continuously: Eek a Mouse, Pablo Moses, Junior Reid (Black Uhuru), Roxana Valdivieso, Manuel Miranda, Alex Lora (the Tri) Pierina Less ( Mother Matilda) Jean Pierre Magnet, Madueño Hair (La Liga del Sueño), Torke, Alejandro Fernández, Natalia Jiménez, Ha Ash, Ana Victoria, Noel Schajris (Without Flag) Diego Torres, Pedro Suarez Vértiz, Eva Ayllón, Armandinho, Luis Enrique They are some and some of the talented artists with whom I have shared the stage.
In 1999 and for the next ten years, I worked as a session musician with Andrés "el Mono" Landavere, in Landavere-Zimmerman studies. for recordings of different artists, as well as soundtracks of films, musicalizations and short films, are among others, some of my collaborations as studio guitarist, composer and producer.
Pepe Ortega, teacher, friend and manager of my first band, calls me in 2004 to be part of Gianmarco Zignago's band, of which Pepe was a musical director and bassist. For the next eleven years, Gianmarco (3 times Latin Grammy Award winner) and members of his band would tour the entire planet bringing their music and collecting unique and unrepeatable experiences.
Meanwhile, the creative need led me to experience different sounds and alternatives. The sitars of India, the Australian didgeridoos, the Indo-Utani tables, mini moogs, generated sounds that I dreamed of, sounds that I had in my head while playing in rock bands composed mainly of guitars, drums and bass. Progressive music, funk, acid jazz, blues, Rock, had always been my backbone and my reference, however, I also began to feel fascination in the 90's for electronic music and the possibilities without limit that Technology offered me. I went on a trip with my portable sequencer and developed experimental themes with sounds and instruments that fascinated me.
This path of experimentation and creative freedom led me to publish in 2008 my first album, "Exp One", in which thanks to technology I could have access to all those sounds and rhythms from different parts of the world, which in other times would have required the presence of many musicians, something that would have been impossible.
In 2011 I was summoned to be part of the Rock covers band "Glammers", playing in all kinds of private events and corporate events for 7 years (2011 - 2018)
This 2019 I am working on my 3rd solo album. An instrumental disc that focuses on music as soundtracks of situations and moments. music of scenes of my life, images, and dreams. painting and coloring sounds and letting the imagination fly. At the same time I continue teaching Electric Guitar and Electric Bass to young people and adults in a personalized and flexible way. both to learn and to enjoy music without putting on barriers or limits.
