Pablo Boness

Story

Life is music! Between various jobs as a sailor, carpenter, publisher, ... I started playing in bands from the late 70's as a semi-pro percussionist. All genres from pop/rock/soul to afro/jazz/latin but throughout the years I have always been writing my own music and (pop-)songs on guitar. Some of them got recorded and already made it to CD's, others I'm still working on. Since a couple of years I write and perform together with my wife. Our band is called La Galeria: www.lagaleria.org .
