MIAMI, June 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 250 students from Miami International University of Art & Design will attend the graduation ceremony to be held on June 14, 2019 at 3:30pm at the James L. Knight Center. Students will hear from Emmy Award winning, Latin-Grammy nominated graduate, Eduardo "Gualo" Jaramillo who will return to deliver the keynote address to students, families and friends in the same stage he walked through just five years prior.
Beat-boxing sparked his interest in music not long after migrating to Miami, FL from Caracas, Venezuela at the age of 7. Eduardo "Gualo" Jaramillo learned the skills and honed his talent throughout his formidable years learning to play the guitar, piano, drums and finally learning to use his own voice. His interest continued to deepen as he learned to be resourceful selling candy in school to raise money to purchase home recording gear that was tucked away in a converted walk-in closet he used as his studio. His passion for all things music continued to expand prompting Eduardo to seek opportunities and education leading him to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Audio Production from Miami International University of Art & Design graduating in 2014. His accolades include 2015 Latin-Grammy Nomination for Best Latin Jazz Album where he was the sound engineer, a self-produced album released in 2017 entitled "The Other Side of Love Songs," and an Emmy Award in 2018 as the composer for the Best Documentary Film "Art Vessel". Currently Gualo is the music producer, editor and mixer for the Telemundo Global Studios and Netflix hit series, "La Reina Del Sur," Season 2.
"We are honored to have Eduardo back at MIU addressing the next generation of graduates and are proud that we played a small role in his success," says Erika Fleming, president of Miami International University of Art & Design.
