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

Don Bolo is an instrumental and experimental fusion band from Quito, Ecuador. Born as a street band in 2015, we have recorded an EP in 2017 and a LP called "El Principio del Fin" in november 2018. Don Bolo experiments with different sounds and music styles to create what we call Criminal Punk Jazz. Sometimes as a duo, trio, quartet, quintet or even as a sextet Don Bolo never plays the same way and never sounds the same, every time is a different experience. Sometimes more jazz than punk, sometimes more punk than jazz, sometimes hip hop or funk and sometimes even noise. Now we are currently working on our second album, pushing our musical limits and creating new music for the future to come. Don Bolo is: Emilio Montenegro - Bass José Hernandez - Drums Luis Sigüenza - Saxophones Daniel Gachet - Guitar Tania Cortes - Synths
