From the Upstage web site:

Rafael Tranquilino is a big city kid - Mexico City - and is accustomed to subways, stadium sports (especially baseball), and lots of opportunities to hear and play live music. His father, a newspaper journalist, fostered Rafael's interest and talent in music, starting him on the piano when Raf was five years old. By the time he was nine, he was playing guitar, bass and drums. After high school, he studied music at La Escuela Superior de Composicion y Arreglo Musical and from a teacher from the University of Music in Mexico City.

Mexico has a rich tradition of music festivals, and Rafael has performed at many of them, including the International Festival Cervatino, sometimes with his own band and sometimes with well-known Mexican artists, such as legendary rock and blues singer Baby Batiz and the classic blues band, Heavy Nopal. Since arriving in the United States, Rafael's exciting style and notable "chops" have earned him the reputation as one of the hottest young guitar slingers around
