Julián Zapata is a keyboard/piano player and multi-instrumentalist born in Medellín, Colombia. He started his musical studies when he was 5 years old at the Institute of Fine Arts. When Julián was 17, he made his first tour in Europe where he participated in the Rencontres De Folklore Internationales (Fribourg, Switzerland), the 27th International Folklore Festival (Belgium) and the Festival Expo 02 in (Switzerland). 

Julián studied a Bachelor degree in Music Education with an emphasis in classical piano at the Universidad de Antioquia. He joined the band “La Toma” from 2009, which is one of the most important rock/world music bands in Colombia. The unique style and diversity of sounds, colours and textures that he performs through the different instruments such as the organ, orchestras, analog keyboards, accordions, among others, is what distinguishes him in the band. 

Julián has done several tours in México and Costa Rica, and he has performed in various concerts and festivals along side with Calle 13, Panteón Rococo, Amigos Invisibles, Bomba Estéreo, and many others.
