Argentinean Charango virtuoso Diego Jascalevich amazes on his small Southamerican plucking instrument by means of stunning virtuosity and musical passion. He was born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1965, lived in Bahia, Brazil, and in Rome for many years before coming to Germany. Since 1977 he has performed in Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador da Bahia, Madrid, Copenhagen, New York, Paris, Rome, London and a number of German venues. He recently appeared at Peter Gabriel´s London World Music Festival and has participated in numerous CD-productions with such accomplished musicians as Italian Tenor Andrea Bocelli and Flamenco guitarist Jose Luis Monton.

His recordings document an unprecedented but genuine way of Charango playing, without departing from the instrument's roots. His versatile new technique allows the Charango to shine solo, in thecompany of a Classic guitar, with a String Quartet (as in the case of the piece "Arcos, Charango y Bombo") amongst Jazz bands and almost any other imaginable formation.
