About Me

The jazz bassist Xavi Castillo was born in Terrassa (Barcelona, Spain), a city known for its long jazz tradition.
He got his Bachelor’s degree at ESMUC (Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya) specialized in jazz interpretation. During his degree, he had the chance to spend a semester at the Koninklijk Conservatorium (The Hague, Netherlands).
Xavi always combined his passion as a bass player with his commitment to music education. He has given countless private lessons to students of any age and has taught at municipal schools. Currently, he is a teacher at the public music school of Terrassa (Conservatori de Terrassa). He finished the ESMUC’s Master in Pedagogy for Musicians in 2020.

He is based in Barcelona, working with various local and international artists. His current projects include two jazz trios, TRO and Xavi Castillo trio that he co-leads and leads, respectively, and the jazz 5et Gran Reserva that he co-leads. He is also involved in numerous collaborations as a sideman that are mainly focused, but not limited, to jazz.
