Ricardo Cobo, one of the world's supreme virtuosi of the new classic guitar generation, performs as part of the UNLV Performing Arts Center season at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20, in the Doc Rando Recital Hall of the Beam Music Center. Celebrated worldwide for his passionate and mesmerizing performances, he is in high demand as a soloist, lecturer, and recording artist.
Cobo debuted professionally at age 17 with the Orquesta Filarmonica de Bogota (Colombia), and was the first Hispanic to win consecutive prizes at the Guitar Foundation of America International Competition. He returns with special guests to perform Tangos y Sones Cubanos. Sones cubanos originated in Cuba in the 1920s, and tangos are the music from the popular dance.
