Jacco Velarde - Bolivian Traditional Music

For the past 14 years, I've refined my technique and musicianship while taking it upon myself to perfect the canon of musical literature that all of the masters before me have successfully confronted. The result of my labors is a string of successful performances, along with audience and critical acclaim.      



I'd like to share with you my most recent discovery.

Mine are the eyes of a composer, too.


Don't think that I'm confined to just performing. Oh, no. I have been formally studying composition for the past ten years with the best private instructors and through the most renowned musical training institutions in the world. I'm always available for original, commissioned compositions.         


I can say humbly and without ego that I'm not your average musician. I started my musical training at the age of 9 under the stern tutelage of my grandfather, himself a musician who played numerous ethnic Andean instruments , including the  guitar, charango, mandolin and quena.


It was clear from the moment I realized that I was born into a musical family was to be my destinyAl
