The composer

Roque Carbajo

Roque Carbajo started to compose music at very early age. His first musical training was transmitted orally by his parents and the musicians he met during his travels around the world. His first pieces for guitar were created threw ear and instinct. The first piecegoes back to the 1960s ; "Ballade brésilienne" which he dedicated to his father. Later, during his teenage years, musicians such as the Colombian Angel Forero and especially the Paraguayan Nicolas Pérez González initiate an interest for 'Jazz' harmonics through the Brazilian popular music. This influence remains to this day. His compositions combine different styles: world music, jazz and classical.
