Fabian Spampinato Gymnopedie #1

I can't figure out exactly who this is or where he's from. He is associated with "Caballero Reynaldo" and his series of Spanish Zappa covers. Maybe he's from Argentina? The #Fundemia release has several Zappa covers, but I'm playing Erik Satie's "Gymnopedia #1", arranged and performed in the style of a Zappa band.
