Alex Sanguinetti

Alex Sanguinetti has had an outstanding and intense musical carreer in the USA, Europe and Latin America. He started to play drums at the age of thirteen and played with most of the local musicians until he was heard by Kenny Clare in London who offered him to perform clinics with him and teach at his school in England, which he did for six months.

Later, thanks to the endorsement of Pierre Moerlen (Gong) and the Mozarteum he traveled back to London to teach (City College of Leeds) and to play with musicians from the british scene.

Back in Argentina he was heard by George Gruntz who signed him up for playing at the Berlin Jazz Festival in 1982.
From this moment on, Alex lived for about eight years in Europe, playing daily and performing seminars with many of the most important figures in the music worldwide (see Bio). In 1991 he moved to New York with a scholarship of Manhattan School of Music.

From 1992 to 1999 he lived in Argentina and he continued his international carreer playing two times a year in Europe and USA, touring with foreign musicians who visited Argentina and teaching privately, this being an aspect of his work for which he received a number of awards. During those years, he was representative of the famous New York school, Drummers Collective in Argentina.

Since August 1999 he lives in Munich, Germany, where he continues teaching and performing.

Born: in Buenos Aires, Argentina, November 18, 1958.
