Gabriel Medina Arenas
Gabriel is a journalist who's trying to make jazz more popular.
I am a Mexican journalist and radio host who loves jazz,
bossa nova, and rock.
I graduated with a master's degree in Journalism and Mass
Communications at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln.
I have worked as a full time reporter for the Mexican national
newspaper Excelsior as well as for El Universal Estados Unidos.
I have also written stories for websites like Fusion and Nebraska
Mosaic; as well as magazines like Travel + Leisure, Music Life and
I have also worked as a host and script writer at Horizonte 107.9 FM,
the only Mexican radio station dedicated to jazz in Mexico City; as
well as at KRNU, 90.3 FM.
I'm very interested in promoting this music in my country as well as
showing the rest of the world that the jazz scene is getting bigger
little by little in Mexico.
There are great mexican jazz musicians, but their work is not so well
known. Antonio Sánchez is one of the few examples of Mexican jazz
musicians whose name and work are famouse today, but there are many
other talented Mexican jazz musicians besides him and I would like to
show their music to anybody who doesn't know them.
