Alberto De La Rosa
Alberto De La Rosa instills the arpa jarocha with a universal dimension, interpreting not only regional themes but also music from every latitude and every era.
His extensive journeys throughout Latin America have exposed him to the harp’s enormous range of rhythms and styles, as well as to the finest harpists in the countries visited.
He has performed as a harp soloist in more than 60 countries and at the world’s most important International folklore festivals, fueling wide public interest in the music of Mexico and Veracruz. He has also performed with symphony orchestras in Mexico, the United States, South America and Europe.
De la Rosa is the founder and director of TLEN HUICANI, a group dedicated to folk music since 1973. The Writers Union of Mexican Music and Theater has described TLEN HUICANI as "The Best Folk Music Group in Mexico.”
De la Rosa has provided music for the University of Veracruz’s Ballet Folklórico and has toured with the dance troupe in Central and South America, Cuba, the Bahamas, the United States, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Yugoslavia, Germany, China and Japan.
