Although he has a wide background of traditional folk music, he has been influenced by Blues, Jazz and Funk music, the experience he collected from his former teachers inspired him to composed music trying to blend this influences. In 2018 Joaquín had the pleasure to being invited to perform along with Chilean Songwriter Paulina Perez and her band Luna Mestiza, on the same year they were booked to play on the Panama Jazz Festival, were artist like Wayne Shorter, Danilo Perez, Chucho Valdéz, Terri Lyne Carrington, among others.

The Joaquin Bustamante Band is a small format which a allows the band itself to explore different sounds and textures without the need of having a bigger ensamble. Either the trio or quartet format allows the band to be feature on small clubs and also on big stages, since their music allows them to expand or shrink their sound according to the need of the audience or venue.
