...I believe that this work will underscore the link between the Latino-american countries and Spain, through the guitar and its history. I back up this remark with my best wishes for the greatest success.”

— Paco de Lucía: (on “Travesía”)

My congratulations as well as applause for this work; it was the charm of creating a subtle atmosphere, full of poetry. I think that “Travesia” will have the full support of the public, and I hope that this is so. Your creative musical work and your performance on the guitar are excellent     ”
