    Unifying Eliezer and Orlando has resulted in a duet dedicated to interpreting Latin Romantic Melodies which the public will enjoy.

    Eliezer Torres, born in New York City, son of Puerto Rican parents. At age 5 they bought him his first guitar and since then, dedicated his life to this instrument. During his teenage years, he performed alongside a quartet of young ladies; his sisters. His dedication to the instrument has helped him develop a unique style which he teaches to others through different mediums.  Eliezer’s versatility in the instrument and love for music moves him to interpret different modes of music; jíbaro, jazz, pop, classical, boleros, gospel, not all inclusive, are all part of his repertoire. Eliezer plays for the love of music and not for recognition which speaks of his humble spirit. With the same dedication, he will interpret music for one individual as well as for the crowds.

    Throughout his professional musical career, he played with a diverse number of musical groups and made many recordings.  Musical groups such as Trio Mizpa, Grupo Siembra, Sol Sin Fronteras, just to mention a few, where influenced by Eliezer musical talent. His fellow guitarist call him “Maestro” for his proficiency, unique style, precise fast fingers, and soft touch on his guitar strings. He has influenced many individuals in the field of music in their recordings, in composing as well as in musical arrangements.

    Born in Ponce Puerto Rico, graduated from the University of Puerto Rico in the mid 70s.  While still in High School he showed an interest in music and learned to play the guitar.  Participated with several musical groups in his native Ponce while attending the University of Puerto Rico in San Juan. After graduating and working with the State government in the Island he moved to Massachusetts, where he still lives.  During the time he lived in Massachusetts he was not involved in musical projects, and it was not until retiring from the Massachusetts state government that began to be more active in music again, playing guitar.  In 2013 began to teach himself (with help of online videos) the “Cuban Tres”, an instrument that he had always found to be very versatile to play different types of music.  A few years later he teamed up with Eliezer Torres, a masterful guitar player with years of experience, and formed a duet.  Their musical interests were very similar, including popular music, semi-classical and Brazilian music.  They continue to enjoy playing and developing new ideas in what they do.
