He completes his studies in guitar and begins learning charango. Since then, he and his beloved charango have been inseparable. In November of 1992, the renowned Cuban singer-composer Silvio Rodriguez, after watching one of his performances, was so impressed that he immediately invited him to perform with him on a tour throughout Chile. Since then, he has been awarded the honour of being named a "Maestro de Charango" by the Bolivian Charango Society, has recorded two solo albums, "Charango y Guitarra" (1994) and "Charago al Sur del Charango" (2003), and has participated in the album "Charango, Chilean Composers" (2003) alongside the most distinguished "charanguistas" in Chile.
