Nelson Gomez was born in Manizales, Colombia where he began his music studies with Noel Salazar Giraldo. At a very young age he formed several traditional Colombian music groups. He travelled across Latin America and settled in Mexico where he dedicated his time to research in ethnomusicology, specialising in the music of Veracruz. He studied composition with Juan A. Rosado and piano with Luis Mayagoitia at the U.N.A.M. (Mexico’s National Autonomous University). There he founded the group “Quimbaya” with Francisco Gonzalez in order to promulgate traditional Latin American music.

Since 1982, he has lived in France. He studied composition and analysis with Katori Makino and classical guitar with Francis Verba at the Paul Dukas Conservatory of Paris. He also studied musical arrangement and orchestra with Francois Theberge, Jean Gobinet y Heriberto Paredes in the I.A.C.P. (Jazz school of Paris). He has appeared in major festivals and concert halls all over the world, and recorded CDs with Ricardo Sandoval, the “Bacata Group” and the “Recoveco Group”.
