Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Gabriel Rios moved to Belgium at the age of 17. There he explored the world of painting at the Luca School of Arts in Ghent. But he soon discovered that his passion for creativity was not limited to the canvas.

With his most recent album, “Flore”, he has ventured into reinventing old Latin classics. Gabriel Rios brings songs that are deeply rooted in his own artistic soul.
