Andrés Fonseca

Drummer, Composer, Producer, Educator



Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Andrés Fonseca started playing piano at an early age, but soon after he discovered his true passion for percussion instruments. After completing his studies at the Universidad Sergio Arboleda in Bogotá, he won a scholarship to study music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated from Berklee with a dual degree, cum laude, in Contemporary Composition & Production as well as Jazz Drumset Performance.

Since coming to the Unites States, Andrés has performed in major venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Apollo Theater in New York City; the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.; and the Detroit Jazz Festival, among others. He has released his own compositions with his band, Unlimited Perception, in addition to recording for and playing with many of his peers.

Andrés’ unique voice--in both drums and his own compositions--blends the sound and tonalities of modern jazz with traditional Latin music. His work interweaves traditional, ancestral, specifically Colombian music, with modern drumset and its evolution mainly through jazz and contemporary music.
