He created flamenco sitar which consists to perform flamenco basic scales on sitar. He first introduced his musical "fusion" approach in his first band Smash in the early seventies. Two albums of progressive rock will be published under this name.

During these recent years he appeared in Woodstock festival and also met Frank Zappa. In 1975 he started his career in solo, recording his first album personal album "A La Vida Al Dolor" ("To the life and the pain") a monumental progressive psych album. It features an important use of electric rock guitar next to acoustic parts delivered by flamenco guitar, sitar and violin. In 1976 he released his second official album called"Vericuetos", one of the major contributions for the development of Spanish rock music.

After these two classic albums, Gualberto worked for numerous projects with others musicians, notably with Ricardo Mino for a serie of albums more in the genre of traditional flamenco music composed with an evident use of sitar and Hindu's accents ("Puento Magico" in 1983, "Sin commentario" at the beginning of the 90's). He recently released an album "Resistances" (1998) with the great flamenco guitar interpreter Ricardo Mino. Read more on Last.fm.
