Update: 2022 Oct: It is apparent that my hiatus is still on going, but I have done some recordings that can be heard on my Reverbnation music page.
www.reverbnation.com/gusamador where you will find the latest DIY recordings.
I would like to thank all of you that supported me over the years. I hope my music inspired and enlightened your mind.
