Gabriel Garzón-Montano

A child of immigrant parents – a child of Brooklyn, NY – Gabriel Garzón-Montano’s aesthetic is an extension of his French-Colombian heritage, a pastiche of Bach sonatas, cumbia records, and the machine gun funk that echoes from behind half-rolled tints up-and-down Nostrand Ave. He sings of the struggles and uncertainties of the multilayered game that is America today; from the specific doubt and double consciousness of the first-generation citizens, to the universal challenges of love, legacy, and exploring the maze of one’s own mind.
