Master percussionist Gino Castillo began playing drums at just five years old in Ecuador. He studied at music conservatories in Havana, Cuba, where he discovered his passion for Cuban jazz. He worked as a solo musician in New York for several years before settling in Charleston, South Carolina with his family in 2010. Gino has earned several Jazz Artist of the Year awards, collaborated with many renowned international artists, and has taught at the Berklee College of Music. With his band, The Cuban Cowboys, Gino electrifies the stage with a lively, authentic style reminiscent of the great Tito Puente and beloved Buena Vista Social Club.
