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 in municipal schools as well as in the public music school of Terrassa (Conservatori de Terrassa). He is currently enrolled in the Master in Pedagogy for Musicians at ESMUC.

He is currently 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-lead and leads, respectively, and numerous collaborations as a sideman that are mainly focused, but not limited, to jazz.
