Raffy was born and raised in Pasig City, Philippines and has been a US resident for many years. He learned to play the guitar when he was 8 years old – mostly by listening to recordings and observing other guitar players. He performed with a rock band during his teens but was eventually captivated by classical music, so he taught himself to play the classical guitar. Since living away from his country of birth, he has a natural longing for all things Filipino and has been on an ongoing journey to reconnect with his Filipino roots. Along the way, he discovered the beauty of Philippine music written by distinguished Filipino composers, past and present. His renditions on classical guitar bring back memories of when life was much simpler. More >>
