Gino Gamboa is a Los Angeles based cajon player and maker. As a cajoneador, Gamboa currently employs the instrument to keep the infectiously rhythmic beat of Peruvian band, Grupo Inca's folkloric tunes. His mastery over the instrument has allowed him to tour with Peru Negro, internationally reknown Afro-Peruvian musical ensemble, and Eva Ayllon, the foremost Afro-Peruvian singer and composer.
