About Alex Acuña

Alex was born in Pativilca Peru, about one hundred miles north of Lima. His family was extremely musical, including 5 brothers and a father who were all musicians themselves. Alex decided to take up the drums, and started to teach himself how to play the drums at the age of four. He was very successful, and by the time he was 10, he was already playing for many local shows and bands. Alex eventually realized music is where he wanted to be, and by the time he was a teen, he moved to Lima, Peru and became a full time studio session drummer. It was here where he built his name as one of Peru’s most accomplished session drummers, as he recorded for many studio projects, and television shows. -
