Performing a solo concert gives me the opportunity to look at myself in the mirror publicly and see all of my wrinkles and my scars. It lets me express my true being without fear of struggling with the defeats I have experienced in the past, without being modest about the great victories that have allowed me to continue to live, and without any shame when speaking of the hopes I have for the future. Performing solo is an intimate act that becomes public during the concert. It is like offering up improvised prayers in front of an audience of people; those prayers that normally we use when we are alone and we say softly or in the silence of our mind. I began my career doing solo concerts. I will continue to perform solo with the accordion, ancient and modern organetto (portative organ and diatonic accordion), vocals, and with everything I need to "play" Roberto Lucanero for you.
