About
An accomplished performer of Flamenco, Jazz, Classical Guitar, and
the Arabic lute (a.k.a. the Oud), Ronaldo has been playing for New
Mexico audiences for 20 years at venues such as the National
Hispanic Culture Center of New Mexico, El Rey, Albuquerque
Convention Center, La Posada Hotel, Cafe Broadway, Silk Road, and
the Santa Fe Play House. Outside of New Mexico he has performed
in Hollywood, CA; Las Vegas, NV; Denver, CO; Lawrence,KA;
Amarillo,TX, and Jerez de la Frontera, Spain.

Ronaldo has been a guest artist on several recordings, among them
Devil Dog Road, a Psychic Sparkplugs CD recorded in 1995 by the
band Liar, and Hard Steps, a Window Records audio tape by poet
Jimmy Santiago Baca, recorded in 1996. He also recorded in Spain
for a CD being produced out of England.

Ronaldo has formed and been a member of several bands, including
Maria Benitez's Second Company, Flamenco del Encanto, Cabaret
Flamenco, Aire Flamenco, Sadaqa, Sci-Fi, Scheherezade/Rajaz, and
Fathom.

Ronaldo has been studying, composing, teaching, and performing
music for twenty-three years. He began to study classical guitar at the
age of thirteen under Hector Pimentel. Then, he was a soloist for three
years in Satin Nights, a high school jazz band where he played both
guitar and bass. Under the influence of his grandfather, his interests
broadened to include Flamenco. He has studied Flamenco for twelve
years under the guidance of Juan Junquera Cortez, Santiago Moreno,
Pedro Cuadra, Chuscales, Pedro Cortez, Roberto Castellon, and Eric
Patternson.

Ronaldo has also become an accomplished Middle Eastern Oud
performer. His love for Flamenco has greatly influenced this. Without
the Arabic Oud, Flamenco guitars would have never existed. This is
why is comes so natural to him. His Oud teachers consist of well
known maestros from both the Arabic and Turkish cultures, namely
Naser Musa, Haig Manoukian, and Necati Celik.

Ronaldo pursues Spanish Flamenco and Arabic music particulary
because of their intensity and raw passion. He brings to the music an
aggressive style and an instinctive understanding of its underlying
pathos. For over a year, he studied and lived in Jerez de la Frontera,
Andalucia, Spain, with a Moorish echo in the background, amongst
the true Flamencos of the present day. He was reared amidst a family
devoted to Flamenco, and his familiarity with its form and its culture is
reflected in his passionate performances.

Ronaldo was excellent, very professional. He was very patient and accommodating, with the family, and guests, and delighted everyone with his guitar playing. Will definitely recommend to friends, and will hire again if I have a need for a kickass guitarist.
