Román Lacrouts on SoundBetter

The sound of Ronroco 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 baritone charango.

I play Ronroco, 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.

    Roman did a great job layering some Ronroco parts on my composition. The tone, the playing, the rhythm all sounded great. He's prompt, communicative and has an excellent tone and musicianship with his work.

    I have collaborated with so many people but, Román is exceptionally patient and collaborative. I could feel that he was only focused toward the quality of the final song.

    we went back and forth and we was amazing with the final Artwork.

    Thanks Román

    The best as always!

  15. 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!

  • 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.
