Alejandro Espinosa Trio- Independent

I started to study and play drums since 10 years old. In the 70's I leave my engineering studies to get into music. I was living in Brazil for a while and in the 80's I lived in Chicago playing with local musicians. In 1982 I was invited to Berla­n Jazz Fest as Intersouthamerican Drums All Star group. Later I returned to Chile to be the musical producer of Classica FM, a commercial radio Station where we put together great jazz fest, playing with great artists as Ivan Lins, Leny Andrade, Joe Lovano, Fareed Haque, Melissa Aldana, James Moody, etc. In 2015, I did a USA tour with Chilean Jazz Project including outstanding bassist Christian Galvez.
