Román Lacrouts on SoundBetter

The sound of Charango is unique and it goes well in many genres, it's exotic and gives any song something special. I can add to your song a sound that differentiates it from the rest. Ronroco is a IVth down (baritone charango).

I play Charango, a south-american small guitar similar to ukelele. The one Gustavo Santaolalla plays. I specialize in Latin American folk music, but also I can play many genres and styles with charango or guitar. I'm also composer/singer-songwriter.

You can check my work on iTunes / Spotify / YouTube with "Olvide San Telmo", "Román Lacrouts", "Pilo García", "Tanckeray", "Nuna - música de Raíz Folklórica", "Hernán Crespo Acordeon", "De la mano", etc.

I'm a very responsible musician who will do my best to fulfill your needs and complying in a timely manner.

  1. Review by Abbas A.

    I requested both charango and ronroco tracks from Roman, and he provided a magnificent piece of work. Before the work, I had so many ideas and guidelines on how I imagined the tracks would be. However, the moment Roman provided me with a sample demo, I put all my ideas aside, and went with whatever direction he had. His tracks were so beautiful to the point where some of my colleagues suggested that I have an acoustic version of my song, with only the vocal and the charango/ronroco tracks. I will definitely be back to work with him again!

  7. Review by Ben V.

    I had a musical idea for one of my tracks and no skills to play a whole guitar section incl. classic guitar, ronroco, charango & asked roman to help out. The collaboration was super friendly & professional. The outcome / contribution to the track turned out so so nice. The timing, phrasing & contribution to composition and generally the sound were perfect. Looking forward to more projects in the future.

  • Taylor GS mini Mahogany, available for your song!Aug 05, 2020

    I've recently bought a beautiful and great sounding Taylor GS mini Mahogany guitar. I was looking for an acoustic guitar for a while, but never tried one that fits my needs. That changes when I tried a GS mini and fall in love instantly. I've chosen Mahogany because it has a warmer sound than spruce tops.

    If you like, I'm available for some acoustic guitar vibes!

  • Baritone classical guitar!Nov 03, 2019

    I've recently accuired some special strings for my classical guitar. Now it's transformed to a baritone one. The new tune is B E A D F# B, and it sounds deeply awesome.
