El Taller Latino is proud to welcome Mexican guitarist Bernardino Rodríguez, as part of the monthly "Classical Masters" concert series curated by Mexican guitarist Humberto Flores.
Bernardino began his musical studies at the Juventino Rosas Music Institute in Xalapa, México, and later studied personally with Professor Karim Vázquez. In August 2003, under the guidance of Professor Cutberto Córdova, Rodriguez continued his studies at the Universidad Veracruzana.
