Gustavo Galindo

GUSTAVO GALINDO was born in Mexico City and moved to California at an early age. He grew up playing guitar with his dad and listened to various kinds of music, from rancheras written by Jose Alfredo Jimenez to the pop melodies of Juan Gabriel and Luis Miguel to international bands like The Beatles and U2. In college he drew inspiration from the new breed of Latin artists, from Mana to Ozomatli, whose music defied traditional labels. Not restricted by language or genre, Gustavo writes and performs in both English and Spanish. His sound is a combination of traditional and contemporary Mexican and American styles. Today Gustavo is a favorite among both music fans and professionals who have seen him perform relentlessly, opening up opportunities to support several top Latin acts. In addition to legends such as Enrique Iglesias and Juanes, he has shared the bill with Zoe, Kinky, Gloria Trevi, Ximena Sariñana, Natalia Lafourcade, Ely Guerra, Alejandra Guzman, Babasonicos, Alex Cuba, Los Amigos Invisibles and more. Those who have followed his early career have witnessed the emergence of a serious talent, and expectations for the release of “Barco De Papel” have been building as he has played for audiences across the country. Without a doubt, his debut album ENTRE LA CIUDAD Y EL MAR is shaping up to be one of this year’s most impressive debuts.
