Course Status:

Asdrúbal ‘Cheo’ Hurtado is one of the greats when it comes to the Cuatro. A master soloist himself, he learned through his family members and ultimately by ear. Without any knowledge of how to read music or any academic understanding in relation to musical theory, he has become an icon in the world of the Cuatro. His interpretations of folkloric songs and techniques have placed him in a class of his own.

Cheo Hurtado has also pioneered and been involved with events relating to the Cuatro such as the Siembra del Cuatro where Cuatristas from around Venezuela come together and present their works and interpretations. TuCuatro was a proud sponsor of the 2013 Siembra del Cuatro and TuCuatro was also heavily involved in the press releases and publicity of the 10 year anniversary of the Siembra del Cuatro.
