About

Discover the uplifting vibes of Afro-Venezuelan rhythms with Gustavo Morales. Gustavo Morales was born in Caracas in 1979. He began his artistic life at a very young age, between dance and music. He studied music at “Jose Angel Lamas” in Caracas. He started to learn international percussion instruments and Afro-Venezuelan percussion in different schools, such as Bigott Foundation and The Trapatiesta (UCV). In adolescence he moved to Aragua, a city renowned for its proximity to the coast, and diversity and cultural enrichment in terms of drumming and other leather instruments and entered the Folkloric Group cumaco in Ocumare de la Costa, Aragua State.
