GITARISTA by Reev Robledo

The 1970s: Rise of cosmopolitan Manila.

This historical novella takes place during the growth of the Philippines’ capital as a metropolis. Buildings towered over paved roads, vehicles caused traffic jams, business districts were expanding, and the music and arts scene was a burgeoning form of entertainment and a stark representation of the country’s national identity.

Raised by a single mother in the province, guitar virtuoso Alejandro Sebastian is thrust into the classical music scene when he gets accepted into The Conservatory of Music. With the National Music Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA) a few months away, eccentric maestro Pablo Rocca trains his gifted protégé to become a guitar grandmaster while Dani, a free-spirited violinist, provides friendship and inspiration.

From Manila’s highbrow venues to its darkest corners, Alejandro’s musical journey will change all he has known and all he has ever wanted to become.

A bittersweet romance between truth and destiny, Gitarista is a young man’s search for the symphony of his life.
