Angel has always felt a special connection to music and the guitar was his first choice of instrument. But after listening to musicians like Billy Cobham, he discovered the multiple possibilities of the drums. He was so inspired that he decided to become a professional drummer. He started his musical studies in the Conservatorio Superior de Música in Madrid. There he studied music theory, coral studies and percussion. His first practice pad was a present from his bother Javier who had become fed up of seeing him practicing by beating up on his college books. Years later his oldest brother, Emilio gave him his first real drum kit. He continued his studies, learning from books, records, videos and any kind of material that he could get his hands on.

He started playing professionally with singers and bands of all kinds of music. Amongst those, the most well known are Ana Belén, Victor Manuel, Miguel Bosé, Ketama, Alejandro Sánz, Rosendo, Juan Perro, Luz Casal, Duncan Dhu, Cómplices and a long list of etceteras.

Angel has also worked extensively in recording studios and can be heard on the albums of artists such as Ana Belén and Victor Manuel, Miguel Bosé, Antonio Vega, Hevia, Duncan Dhu, etc, etc. He was a member of the live band in the musical "We Will Rock You" which premiered in Madrid in October of 2003.

He has collaborated with several music journals that specialize in drums and has also dedicated some of his time to teaching in music schools as well as giving private classes.
