Gustavo Sandoval aka TAVO was born in Colombia in 1977 where he started his career at the beginning of the 90’s. Walking through the usual steps of classical DJs, he mastered the mixing techniques of the time by playing vinyls at garage parties and later on, at the top clubs of his city.
From then on, he traveled to several countries and held residencies in some of the greatest clubs in Europe and Asia where his skills made him one of the most requested talents in the area. He also performed on massive tours for brands such as Heineken, Chivas Regal, Absolute Vodka, ELLE Magazine, Ferrari, the Formula1 and Sennheiser.
