B i o g r a p h y

Born and raised in Panama, I'm a musician who has been blessed with many opportunities to perform throughout my career. My passion for music started at a young age and was inspired by my father, Mario Ismael Gutiérrez, a well-renowned Operatic Tenor, and my mother, Marilyn Daisy Arosemena, an educator. They provided me with excellent education and values, and encouraged me to pursue my musical career. With their support and guidance, I have become the person and musician I am today.

Music has always been a central part of my life. I remember my mother giving me a guitar on my ninth birthday, and from that moment on, I knew what I wanted to do with my life. While my father and brothers taught me the basics of music, it was the joy of "creating", that kept me going. I feel grateful for having such a supportive and loving musical environment. 

I remember the day my brother Franz, surprised me with a beautiful flute as a gift, from that point on, my second instrument.


My formal music education began at the National Conservatory of Panama, and later, I was fortunate to study with Francisco Velásquez, one of the best classical guitarists in Latin America.


Later, I traveled to the United States of America, where I started a new life accompanied by my wife of now 35 years, Gladys Mariel. We successfully raised 3 beautiful and talented children: Galo Mario Jr (Music Education), Gabriel Mauricio (Fitness Professional) and Giselle (Dance Instructor and Choreographer).


Over the years, I've had the opportunity to perform with some of the most talented musicians in the world, including my own brothers Franz and Eric Gutierrez. Whether playing Latin Jazz or International styles, I always strive to create a sound that is both unique and unforgettable.


Music has the ability to touch people’s souls, and I believe that it is my responsibility to use my talents to make a positive impact on the world. Whether I am performing on stage or in the studio, I pour my heart and soul into each and every piece of music.
