Alejandro Duncan was born in Colón. Growing up, his father was a musician who played a variety of music styles, including calypso, and it was he who inspired Alejandro to become a musician as well. Alejandro attended a school set up through the Salvation Army, and eventually became a music professor. He is bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish, and is married to a West Indian woman who has given him two children. Beyond his family, Alejandro continues to touch the lives of those around him through both his teachings and his music, and his legacy continues through his daughter, who is a saxophone player.
