Carlos Llontop Puyo

I was born and raised in Lima Peru, and have been playing drums since I was 14 years old. In high school, I met other musicians and formed my first band. This was the begining of a never ending passion for playing drums.

My favorite drummers that have influenced me are Vinnie Colaiuta, Dean Castronovo, Mike Portnoy, Steve Smith, Dave Weckl, Neil Peart, Nico McBrain, Aquiles Priester, Dave DiCenso, Kurt Bisquera, Greg Bissonette, Alex Van halen, John Bonhan, Ian Paice, Mike Mancini, Cliff Burr, and many other great drummers.

I am a Session Drummer and a Live Drummer, and have shared the stage with bands like Angra (Brasil), Jason (Argentina), Enanitos Verdes (Argentina), El Tri (Mexico).... I’ve never really played amazing cymbals such as Soultones; they are the best that I have ever played, they are excellent in all situations. Thank you Soultone Cymbals for making me part of the family.
