The Guitarist

Roque Carbajo

Roque Carbajo's first musical training was Mexican and South American folklore. His parents transmitted the rythms and songs oraly giving him the opportunity to begin playing the guitar at a very early age. As in the 1950s, small size guitars did not exist, he began to play on a cavaquinho. His first appearance on stage was in the "La cathédrale de cendres" a theater play written by Berta Domínguez and directed by Abel Gance, presented in Paris. It was his first performance on stage in a leading role, he had to sing and accompany himself on the cavaquinho.
