Congratulations to Del Castillo on the Release of Their New Album, Infinitas Rapsodias, to Worldwide Critical Acclaim!
Your acclaim in the guitar world is unparalleled!
“Their secret weapons are brothers Rick and Mark Del Castillo, whose tumbling brilliance on nylon-string classical guitars features jaw-dropping dual leads. These eruptions of technique and taste conjure images of Eddie Van Halen fronting early Santana (with an assist from the Gipsy Kings)."
- Rolling Stone Magazine
“Del Castillo’s winning points are, well, the whole freaking band. The guitars stand out because they’re so prominent, but everyone pulls their weight. Infinitas Rapsodias delivers in every sense.”
- John Powell-Angelica Music
