“Edel Muñoz showcases the quality of the new generation, he has an exceptional professionalism, in other words magisterial; it is really surprising” Leo Brouwer
Edel Muñoz began his guitar studies at the age of 7 and graduated in 1994 at the National School of Music of Havana. He was only 20 years old when he won the First Prize at the prestigious International Competition and Festival de Guitarra de La Habana, presided by Leo Brouwer.
