Gustavo de Francisco

I already did many things, but art always formed part of my life. Since my early youth I have played the recorder, and even when I moved away from music to study engineering, or from the music production to work in a bank, in all my free time I came back to study music and to play with friends. When we do something that we like, we do it more often and better, and it’s for this reason that music now has my complete and exclusive dedication.
