I want to help

Pato Valdivieso

I started my musical journey at the age of 8, playing guitar, for different school bands, also composing music since then. during my early years I focused on latin american music, trova, rock, pop and some related geners, eventually i passed through some classical training, funk, peruvian rythms and finally i end up in the jazz, fusion thing, and i've been there for a good time now, playing in any gig i can get, everything from bebop to contemporary jazz.

I have been very lucky to be trained by the best musicians peru has to offer, people such as Alonso Acosta, Diego salvador, Monica Gastelumendi, Laura robles, etc. To every fellow musician i had the chance to play with or study with i'd like to thank, cause the experiences we shared, are the main input of my music.
