Born and raised in Lima, Peru, Guil Treistman began his musical training when he started taking guitar lessons at the age of five.

In 2014, he moved to the United States to attend Berklee College of Music. During that time, he recieved the Alex Ulanawsky Award for Outstanding Musicianship, and a performance of his piece for a capella choir “Conversatiosn With Cleo: No 1. End Of Things We Know” was part of the school´s Mascarade Festival at the Old South Church (Boston, MA). In 2018, he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BM in Composition and Theory of Jazz and Pupular Song.

 

After moving back to Peru, he founded the musical project Números Primos. Ever since the release of their first full-length album “Cursi Corazón”, the ensemble has successfully created a loyal and passionate fan base and their music has gathered millions of streams and monthly interactions on all digital platforms and social media.  In recent years, they have collaborated with some of the most notable Latin American musicians and, as they prepare the production of their next LP, Numeros Primos is constantly touring, headlining sold out shows in Latin America and Europe.

 

Parallel to his work on popular music, Guil began a career as a composer for audiovisual media. He has written original songs for film and television (Os Chocolix) and worked in the music department of international productions distributed by Aronnax Films, Pajarraco Films, and 20th Century Fox (Los Ilusionautas, The Nutcracker Sweet, Condorito: La Pelicula). Recently, he composed and performed music for Canvas, a Miami-based clothing boutique partly owned by musician-producers Tainy and Lex Borrero.

 

Guil Treistman is currently based in Barcelona, Spain.
