A New Kind of Sound – The Electric Cuatro

As with other musical instruments, the Cuatro has also been exposed to the new age of innovation and interpretation by modern luthiers and artists. Here we are talking specifically about the Electric Cuatro played in the video below by She’s Alone band artist and Cuatro professor Abraham Sarache:

Electric Cuatro Demonstration: “Promises” Abraham Sarache – She’s Alone


There are different kinds of electric cuatro, being the ones shown below:

Richard Sermeño – Electric Cuatro


Cuatro Silent – Jose Baritto



The differences in instruments and the possibilities they offer are incredible as Abraham Sarache has demonstrated in his demonstration. Within TuCuatro we will also provide music interpreted by these majestic instruments and have dedicated sections to teaching how to play and interpret these instruments.
