About Rodrigo Rodriguez

Born in Argentina and raised in Spain, multi-instrumentalist Rodrigo Rodriguez took to the complex world of classical music at a very young age. He rigidly applied himself to the study of classical guitar until the age of 22, when he discovered traditional Japanese music. Looking to incorporate those sounds into his ever growing repertoire, Rodriguez traveled to Japan and began studying under the tutelage of Katsuya Yokoyama with the Master Kakizakai Kaoru in the International Shakuhachi Kenshu-kan School. He inked a deal with Los Angeles-based record label Gemini Sun in 2006, where he began to carve out a career as one of the more notable purveyors of new age, world, and contemporary music, releasing numerous albums and performing countless shows in both the West and the East. A strong supporter and practitioner of the Zen Buddhist shakuhachi tradition, his albums include Beyond the Times, Across the East, Inner Thoughts, and Shakuhachi Meditations. ~ James Christopher Monger
