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.

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!
Another great job by Roman!
Always great working with Roman!
He goes straight to the point.
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.
Roman delivers quality as always.
It was a pleasant experience with Román, and the result turned out great! Both charango and ronroco sound beautifully, will definitely want to work with Román again.
