Guillermo Serpas

SUCCESSFUL AND VERY TALENTED LATIN GUITARIST
Guillermo is a top-notch artist, who`s always embracing new ways of expressing his Latino passion through music. Straight from his heart and soul , he delivers a new style of poetic lyrics and virtuosic guitar, accompanied by the exotic percussion of his Latin American folklore. The result: a unique and interesting mosaic of world music.The combination of a cultural cross over and years of musical training, has allowed Guillermo to venture into a complete style of his own. A style true to its Latin American roots, which may well be an essential link between world beat and classical music. He follows a long lute tradition spanning from Bach to Barrios, and at the same time, combines his native rhythms of salsa, bolero and samba with North American blues, jazz and rock.
