He began his musical education at the age of three and a half on the violin. A few years later, his father, a musical and national hero in Paraguay, dared young Carlos to learn the complicated 36 string native Paraguayan harp. Being called a child prodigy at an early age he took his fathers challenge seriously, Carlos purchased his first harp for $50.00 when he was just ten years old. Two weeks later, he earned a double encore and $250.00 at his first professional harp concert. Since then he has taken the Harp and itís music to new and ground breaking levels.
Recently returning from tours in Asia and South America he keeps sharing his brand of music to more and more parts of the world with great reviews. Carlos has been invited by the Ministry of Education in Paraguay to come back and give concerts. Out off his last tour to homeland, he has started a program to bring back musical instruments for the children. He is planning to give workshops and get this project/foundation running this year.
