My music is upbeat with happy vibes from Cumbia to guaguanco and a bit of flamenco flavor, also i got very emotional songs with a lot of soul and romanticism all over, if you hear my song you will fall in love the minute that you listen to it, my gift is that i am very easy to come out with melodies

Biography

Originally from Paraguay, I grew up in a house were there was always a Harp, my father plays the Harp but not professionally he was a merchant seamen, but every body on his family play Harp, Guitar Accordion or contrabass.
Wen i was fourteen years old my Father brought me a guitar that i love so much that i used to put it at rest in my bed and cover with a blanket, until one night my sister jump in the bed without knowing that the instrument was there and broke the guitar in pieces. After that i have my heart broken for the first time and cry for several days.
From that day on i just started to practice how ever i can wen some one bring a guitar home i was always watching and asking to teach or show me something i was just want to learn this beautiful instrument, and i did, then i start to play with another friends and family members in festivals, church, family reunion, fairs, serenades, i was just try to get most play in front of peoples as i can.
At 19 i got the opportunitty to become a part of a group called "Conjunto de Arpas y Guitarras Guarani" which was a set of Harp and Guitars consisting in 10 Harpist and 4 Guitarist, with this group we travel with in the Country also Argentina and Brazil.
