SaxBurgos

Koyel Angothi Burgos Bernal is the heir of SAXBURGOS, an artisan project to produce bamboo wind instruments. Saxburgos begins in the nineties thanks to the idea of his father Álvaro Burgos, who creates musical instruments in bamboo, earning with his designs many national awards.

His mission is to bring this cultural heritage to the world to perserve the legacy of his father’s handicraft work, who through his labor was able to take care of his family.

For Koyel the greatest treasure is the time with his family, that is why he loves his work, because it allows him to be present with the beings he loves; he also feels that the instruments bring a cultural value to hir life, because they have allowed him to meet people from around the world who value his creations.
