Counterculture, community organizing and his parent’s refugee experience have shaped his identity and approach to music, collecting records from funk to latin to electronic genres, with a special interest in protest records and music from Central America. Gabriel holds a monthly show called Escuchar al Istmo on Dublab radio which focuses on the diverse musical landscape of Central America, exploring cultural context, nostalgia, and experiences of the diaspora.
