Gino Gamboa was born in Lima, Peru and is the founder of the group “Armonia Criolla” and one of the best exponents of Peruvian music today. He came to the USA a little over thirteen years ago and has dedicated himself to the diffusion of Peruvian music. Gino is also an integral member of the group “Sajama” and later founded the group “Contrapunto” that is still plays to this very date. In all actuality, he is a master of percussion on all levels, especially focusing on teaching and fabricating the Peruvian “Cajon.”
Gino also integrated a Peruvian delegation that participated in the inauguration for the Seoul 88 Olympic Games and ultimately participated in different recordings for musical groups like “Los Hijos del Sol,” “Tolu,” “Eva Ayllon” and “Peru Negro” who he still works with even today. For over five years now he has made the “Concurso Internacional del Cajon” a realization. He continues to travel to different parts of the world offering clinics for the Cajon as well as presenting Peruvian music in general.
