Jaime Torres

Talented charango performer from Argentina, Jaime Torres learned how to play this traditional instrument, based on the Spanish vihuela, at a young age, while taking lessons from Bolivian musician Mauro Nuñez. The artist first record, called Virtuosismo En Charango, was released in 1964, followed by 1965's Charango and 1967's Aplausos Para Un Charango. That same year Jaime Torres started touring Europe for the first time, moving to the U.S. in 1970 to perform in New York, Washington, and Los Angeles. In 1974 the instrumentalist, along with his band, participated in the opening show for the worldwide soccer championship in Germany. A year later, Jaime Torres organized a local instrumentalists encounter, repeating that same experience with children in 1980. In 1988 the musician composed the music for the Oscar nominated movie La Deuda Interna. ~ Drago Bonacich
