“ …all is performed to perfection by an artist who seemingly takes everything in her stride… One runs out of superlatives when writing about Berta Rojas, it has all been said before, countless times.” –Classical Guitar Magazine
Guitarist Berta Rojas is the recipient of the National Order of Merit Don José Falcón and holds the title of Illustrious Ambassador of Musical Art to her home country of Paraguay. Rojas’s recordings have been nominated three times for Latin Grammy Awards in the Best Instrumental Album, Best Classical Album, and Best Tango Album categories. An associate professor at the Berklee College of Music, she is firmly committed to championing the music of the classical guitar, with a focus on promoting the music of Paraguay as well as Latin American music more broadly.
