Arturo Miranda

Arturo Miranda began his musical career at the age of 12. Although his first instrument was the saxophone, the drums, the conga and the bongo captured his attention. It is for this reason that he studied percussion at the National Conservatory of Music and graduated in 2009 from the National School of Folklore José Maria Arguedas.

He has worked with national artists such as Cecilia Bracamonte, Fabiola de la Cuba, Marco Romero, Guajaja, Alborada, Jean Pierre Magnet, Nicolle Pillman, Julie Freundt, Jean Paul Straus, Damaris and international artists such as Jerry Rivera and José Luis “el Puma” Rodríguez, among others.

In 2014 he was part of the musical cast in the national program La voz Perú, where he met different artists and was able to see the growth of many talents from different parts of the country that today are very well known.

Arturo Miranda also opted for teaching music. He has worked as a music professor at the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega University. His love for teaching led him to want to share his knowledge with others and so, in the year 2021, he launched his first book “El Festejo – Método Afroperuano”, in which he wrote multi-percussion patterns for Afro-Peruvian music.

Drummer and bongocero of the 2 Grammy winner Tony Succar, he has been nominated for the “American Grammy” with the album Live in Peru of the same artist.

Arturo Miranda, passionate about good challenges, returned to his city with the goal of forming a salsa orchestra and today he is the director and percussionist of the incredible band AM GROUP in which he has found many talents from Piura, but above all a great musical family.
