Carlos Corona is a guitarist in constant evolution. He began his classical guitar studies at the age of 9 and since then the music has never left him. In the last decade he has traveled through Latin America making concerts and studying with great names of the international guitar scene such as Rogerio Caetano and Alessandro Penezzi.
He has two albums recorded as a soloist and has collaborated in more than 15 productions either as a producer or guest guitarist.

Since then you can found him in milongas playing with two-time Grammy nominee Carlos Libedinsky; accompanying the Brazilian singer Giovanna Piazza with the Babel Collage project; or playing with his own project for different Theaters in Germany, among other varied projects.
