Raul Abbad
Born and raised in Lima, Peru, Raúl Abbad Huaman is an eclectic guitarist and composer based in the NYC Metropolitan Area. Raul’s original music is a reflection of his heritage; a fusion of traditional South American Folkloric music, world music and the modern sounds of American jazz and rock. Raul grew up listening to his mother’s records of the traditional Peruvian guitarist Raul Garcia Zarate which became a source of inspiration to him. This led him to seek out Garcia Zarate as a guitar teacher and study with him. After moving to the US, Raul studied music education, classical guitar and composition at Montclair State University.
