Rangel began his musical studies at age 9 in the Vicente Emilio Sojo Conservatory in Barquisimeto-Venezuela, graduating in classical guitar studies.

He won first place in "Silbón de Oro," a Venezuelan music international festival held in Portuguesa state. In June 2008, he won first place in the International Villavicencio Festival in Colombia.
Rangel released his first album Instinto in 2008. In the same year, Manuel earned a Latin Grammy with his participation on "Tesoros de la Música Venezolana" (Venezuelan Music Treasures) with the renowned singer-songwriter Ilan Chester.
Rangel is working on a project of contemporary music combining organic, electronic, and visual elements with his two main instruments, guitar and maracas. With this project he traveled to Europe and is currently participating in several solo concerts in Venezuela.Free
