Braulio Barrera was born in Lima, Peru on June 29th 1969.
Coming from a family of cultivated musicians and singers of Creole Peruvian music, Braulio was always fascinated by the sounds of his native instrument, the Cajon. The cajon has become one of the main percussion instruments of Peru because of its richness, its adaptability, and the place it conquered with the Peruvians. The development in rhythm reached by the Afro-Peruvians, and the diffusion of the cajon in Peru’s coastal music and now all over the world is outstanding.
At the age of 19, Braulio began his professional career as a percussionist and vocalist in Peru. His musical versatility led him to become one of the lead musicians to perform with Cecilia Barraza, one of Peru’s most respected singers. In 2000, Braulio began touring across the U.S. with various artists ultimately deciding to take up residence in California as a full-time musician. This move led to opportunities teaching, composing, and performing Peruvian and Latin American music with numerous cultural groups.
