At a young age, Juan Escovedo began teaching himself how to play bongos, congas, trap drums, timbales, percussion and other instruments. When he turned 14 he began playing with his father, Pete Escovedo.
Since that time, Juan has established himself in the the industry as undeniably a musician of complexity, style and originality. His artistic achievements flow from his rich musical heritage and compassion for his art form.
