Carles Bellot

Born in Barcelona, from an early age awakened in him the passion for music. His first toys were musical instruments for which he felt a special attraction. Destiny made that he dedicated half of his life to percussion and later to singing, feeling particularly fascinated by all kinds of music which he calls “black” through all its evolutionary state from its origins in gospel and blues, as well as for jazz, R & B, soul, funk, etc.. .

At different stages of his life he has been dedicated to both percussion (various formations of African percussion, rumba, fusion, etc..) As the singing, especially in recent years, which has participated in different gospel music formations (Cor Gràcia Gospel, Gospel Sons or Barcelona Gospel Messengers) and also leading his own jazz group (Carles Bellot Quartet, Quintet, etc.).
