Beautiful Spanish Guitar Music from Darío Torres in Cuenca Ecuador + MonoLab Tour

If you enjoy relaxing, beautiful classical Spanish guitar music, you’ll love this video. We were invited to a recording session at MonoLab here in Cuenca Ecuador to film Darío Torres, an amazing local classical Spanish guitarist with international acclaim.

We also had a chance to talk to Patrich Donicht about MonoLab, his new recording studio.

UPDATE: Sadly, Darío passed away suddenly after we filmed this video. Ecuador and the world lost a truly remarkable person.

Darío Torres y La Casa de Guitarra

Darío Torres is a popular classical Spanish guitarist here in Cuenca Ecuador. He has played all over South America and even in Europe. Much of the music he plays is very popular in rural areas of Ecuador, but it has never been recorded before.

That’s the motivation behind Darío’s exciting fundraising project. His goal is to preserve some of the never-before-recorded music from some of Ecuador’s famous classical Spanish guitarists so it doesn’t get lost in time.

Many of the older Ecuadorian musicians cannot read or write music. In an effort to safeguard their art, Darío is writing down their music and recording it for future generations to enjoy.

The last time we visited MonoLab, it was still under construction. This time, it was finished and ready for recording.

Hola todos! Welcome to my author bio page! Let's see. Where to begin... I grew up in the country on a lake outside a small Kansas farm town. As soon as I could, I got the hell outta there! Since then, I've lived and/or worked in Kansas City, Washington D.C., Denver, San Francisco, and Ecuador. I started and sold a dotcom, wrote a book about it, started a YouTube channel, and now I write a lot. Amelia and I have embraced the Unconventional Life and we want to help you do it, too!
