Guillermo Cuéllar currently serves on the faculty at the Universidad “Francisco Gavidia” in San Salvador, El Salvador and is a member of the multidisciplinary group, “Dirección Nacional de Investigaciones en Arte y Cultura de la Presidencia de la Republica” (President’s National Board of Research for Arts and Culture).

His musical trajectory began as a choir member as a youth in Woodstown High School in New Jersey and the Universidad Centroamericana (UCA) in El Salvador. Over the last 35 years he has been a member of musical groups that best represent the Salvadoran “Nueva Canción”: Sembrador (1975), Mahu Cutah (1977), Yolocamba l Ta (1980), Banda Tepehuani (1986), Cuestarriba (1994), Exceso de Equipaje (1996-2009).

Between 1999 and 2005 he directed the university choir of the Universidad Tecnológica de El Salvador. He is the renowned composer of two mass settings: “Misa Popular Salvadoreña” (1980), which was written at the request of Archbishop Romero, and “Misa Mesoamericana” (1994), as well as “Dos Alas” (2000), a musical composition of the poems of the Salvadoran poet, Alfredo Espino.
