Bio

Born to a musical family in Guadalajara Mexico, this self-taught musician was the youngest of 13, and founder, with the aid of two older brothers and some friends, of Mexico’s biggest pop rock band to date MANA whom world toured and participated on SANTANA’S SUPERNATURAL album.

Abraham pioneered the way audiences viewed rock pop music in Mexico. He recalls “At the age of 8, we started our first band “The Spies of the Green Hat” (Today “MANA”); I have the faded memory of having our first live presentations where we started to play covers from classic rock bands, At the beginning of the 80’s we started to sing rock in Spanish, at that time in Mexico this was very criticized because of the belief rock music should only be in English a period in which we continued several years; I would alternate singing and playing the drums, I could barely reach for the pedals with some extraordinary adjustments, I recall also that minors couldn’t go into bars, so they would sneak me in and out of the kitchens where they would hide me.”. Un-swayed by local narrow views he continued to sing in Spanish. This started to have more and more impact in the media, as well as in live concerts. Green Hat would go on to release two albums with fair success in their home land, then latter they would change their name.

After Green Hat, Abraham wrote “Quisiera que estuvieras aqui” (wish you were here), a National Hit in Mexico. Then a sudden meeting with the great experimental jazz drummer from Switzerland Fredy Studer opened up a whole new world to Abraham. This lead to the next few years dedicated to Jazz music while living in Boston.

After returning to Mexico in the 90’s he brought with him the bragging rights as the first Mexican drummer endorsed by two international companies, Paiste Cymbals, and Remo Drums. Abraham is a multitalented Artist. He has toured in places like Egypt, Spain, Mexico, Canada, and of course, the USA.
