Don Soledad

Inspired by the guitar of flamenco legend; Paco de Lucia, Don Soledad cultivated his sophisticated, soulful sounds in Northern, California, beginning with his early guitar studies with the great Spanish flamenco maestros; Mariano de Cordobá and Agustin Ríos - the nephew of legendary guitarist Diego del Gastor.

His studies continued in the Southern region of Spain; Andalucía in the city of Jerez de la Frontera - with guitarist Juan Diego Mateos. Soon thereafter, he was performing shows in San Francisco and the Sonoma and Napa Valley wineries.

As a performer and recording artist, he has worked with talents in a variety of genres including rock singer Eric Martin (Mr. Big), Jazz bassist Kai Eckhardt (John McLaughlin and Garage Mahal), and opening for the late Jazz guitar legend Larry Coryell.  As a composer, he has recorded 2 original albums (‘Camino de Seda’ 2006, ‘Soluna’ 2013) and a solo Christmas album entitled (‘December Lullaby’ 2015).
