Hello everyone, I'm Jose Juvinao, professional bass player. I studied music at the university of Antioquia, I have a Master's degree in Modern American Music (Cambridge MA), I'm professor at University of Antioquia and Eafit University in World Music, electric bass and doublebass.

Do you need to have a new sound on your songs with your own style? I'm the right musician. I have wide experience recording different music genres. My goal is to provide my best as a musician to give your song the concept it needs.

I usually record one take to give you an idea of the bass line you need. There is no problem if you need some changes.
