Pablo Araujo…

plays the guitar like it is a conversation with an old friend. He listens and reacts to emotions, to each moment, hesitations and hurriedness, with an ease and grace that demonstrates both his years of study and his innate talent. He has an incredible ability to transition from salsa to jazz, from ballads to rock, often on the same stage on the same night. His improvisational skills, his understanding of collaboration and his sense of humor have made him a perfect duo partner. – Isahrai
