He is the founder and general director of the Banda Sinfónica Metropolitana de Bogotá, and is co-founder of Tocar y Luchar (‘To Play and to Fight’), run by Cafam (the Caja de Compensación Familiar, a foundation to help families and communities in Colombia) – the first and only El Sistema programme in his native Colombia.
