Latin American Harp Festival 2013

He was born in Veracruz, Mexico, and continues the tradition he inherited from his father, Guerrero Chipuli. Without forgetting his roots and his public—which feels like family—Delfino participates in local music festivals and presentations through the state of Veracruz. He has also been involved in countless tours throughout Mexico, the United States and Europe.

Now considered one of the finest harpists in the state of Veracruz, Delfino is well versed in his region’s musical traditions as well as the jarocho, a Mexican stringed instrument to which he applies his virtuosity. The end result is a personal experience marked by an acoustic-electric sound that the stars of the world of harps welcome as a fresh dimension of their genre.

Delfino’s talent ensures that the Son Jarocho, a Mexican folk-music style remains alive and enshrined as one of the most important cultural manifestations in Mexico and the southern United States. As an excellent solo harpist, and following in his father’s footsteps, Delfino has become an global ambassador for the music from Veracruz, showcasing his skill on the Veracruz harp, as well as on the Venezuelan and Paraguayan harps.
