About

About me


I am a freelance guitarist from Argentina. I have been playing professionally for the last three decades and have been based in Europe since 2002.

 

A big fan of rock and pop music of the ‘60s and ‘70s and a lover of Jazz and Brazilian Samba and Bossa Nova, my guitar studies included aspects of classical music mixed with jazz and other genres of popular music. I have a vast experience of performing all the genres mentioned above, not only on stage but also as a session musician -both live an at the studio- including work for popular T.V. shows in Argentina.


But through the last two decades tango music has taken over most of my work, perhaps as a way for me to reconnect with my Argentinian roots and culture.


It has also been due to tango music that I’ve had the privilege of playing in some of the world's most renowned and prestigious theatres and concert houses: Paris L’Olympia, London Sadler’s Wells, Sydney Opera House, Chicago Symphony Hall, Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Oslo Opera House and Philadelphia Symphony Hall, to name a few.


More over, tango music has also given me the chance to perform in smaller venues, allowing me to have a more direct and intimate contact with the audiences, which I truly love and appreciate.
