Felipe Mendoza

Músico nacido el 23 de Mayo de 1988. Su incursión a la música no es la usual. A pesar de estar inmerso en ella desde pequeño con los discos de música clásica, boleros, música colombiana y demás que había en su casa y de tomar ocasionalmente clases de piano y guitarra en escuelas de barrio, no descubre el jazz, específicamente a John Scofield, hasta cuando entró a la universidad estudiando otra carrera. En el 2009 conoce al maestro Óscar Acevedo quien por un tiempo le ofrece guía en el género, y que posteriormente le presenta al maestro Enrique Mendoza, con quien estudia durante la mayor parte de su carrera en la Javeriana, iniciada en el año 2012
