Music is a universal language coming in many shapes and forms. It is a way of exercising the mind, body and soul all within the comfort of your own home. Many think this is mostly through listening to music, but being able to play the music with a subliminal instrument takes this experience to another level. Congratulations, for you have chosen the Cuatro as your medium to express yourself with music and create an incredible sound that impacts music lovers of all kinds. It is our pleasure to not only introduce you further to the sounds of the Cuatro, but also to learn about it’s origin, how is it played, what can you do with it and how it’s rhythms can tie into historical moments carried on through the legacy of the instrument.
The Cuatro is an instrument which used to be taught from generation to generation. The grandfather would teach the son, the son would teach the neighbor and the neighbor will play for his family. It is our goal as Cuatro players to offer the teachings of this incredible instrument not only to all of those who are interested, but worldwide. Learning about the Cuatro is the first step to be taken in the great journey into the world of this four stringed marvel.
