______________

Raimundo Rodulfo is a Venezuelan-born American musician, guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and composer, currently living in South Florida. To date he has produced five studio albums and two live albums, all featuring his own compositions performed with a wide group of talented and renowned guest musicians from several countries.

Rodulfo's music does not follow any kind of genre or style. Nevertheless, specialized media from around the world refer to it as Alternative Rock, Classic Rock, Symphonic and Progressive Rock, Jazz Fusion, Folk Rock, and other forms. In the artist's own words: I agree with all of them; I just create the kind of music I would like to enjoy as a listener, and it is simply all the good music, regardless of its kind.

The last studio albums of Raimundo Rodulfo's discography are Open Mind (2013), Mare et Terra (Musea Records, 2008) and The Dreams Concerto (2002). Open Mind is a contemporary rock album with 12 songs for a wide spectrum of listeners. Mare et Terra was released by Musea Records and was recorded in the US, Spain and Venezuela between 2004 and 2008, featuring a mixture of classical and contemporary elements in composition and performance. The Dreams Concerto is a Concerto for Guitar, Group, and Chamber Orchestra, featuring fifteen musicians playing both classical acoustic and modern electric instruments. This album includes a three-movement work performed over almost eighty minutes, with influences from classical music and the contemporary genres of Rock and Jazz, as well as the inevitable element of Latin American Folk music he was exposed to growing up. This work also features some experimental elements, including a mathematical model applied to music and other research works involving both music and engineering fields. Rodulfo's first album, Dreams, was produced and released in 1999, and re-released 15 years later as a remixed and remastered edition in 2014.

Between 2007 and 2010, Raimundo also composed, produced and recorded a suite of three songs for a Colossus/Musea production based in Dante's Divine Comedy. The production is a series of three 4-CD box sets and features artists from many different countries. In 2014, that suite was remixed, remastered and released by Raimundo as a four-movement suite in a short-length album called "Suite Dantesca".

Rodulfo's albums are being worldwide distributed and sold by specialized record companies like Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Universal, Napster, iTunes, CDBaby, Barnes and Noble, Kinesis, Amazon, Shroom Productions, Aeon Music, SynPhonic, Wayside, and Big Balloon in the U.S., Musea Records in France, NetSounds in the U.K., Garden Shed and Diskunion in Japan, Sol & Deneb in Mexico, Rock Symphony in Brazil, and several other distributors and dealers. Specialized musical programs in radio stations from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, Holland, U.K., France, Spain, Belgium and Japan have played music from those albums as well. Television stations from Mexico, Venezuela, Italy and and European cable TV network have played video from Raimundo's DVD and other live performance recordings.

With his band, Rodulfo has performed at the BajaProg Progressive Rock Festival in Baja California, Mexico, and the ProgJazz Festival in Venezuela, among other events. Rodulfo and the band have also opened for International artists The Flower Kings (Sweden), Little Atlas (USA,) and EMV (USA/France/Venezuela).

Most of Raimundo Rodulfo's albums feature the artistic work of Peter Rodulfo, a famed British painter, whose paintings show in art galleries in Miami, New York, London, Rio de Janeiro and other cities in America and Europe. Peter and Raimundo met at a genealogical forum on the Internet when Peter was looking for far-flung relatives in South America, and he discovered their common ancestry in Venezuela two centuries ago.

You will find at Raimundo Rodulfo's official web site www.raimundorodulfo.com reviews and press releases of his albums and shows by the international media from more than twenty countries, as well as biographical information, guest musicians, discography, multimedia audio/video content and more.
