About Enrique Henao:
With his father as his mentor, Enrique started his studies of guitar at a very early age and at 13 performed his first professional concert. His music has taken him to more than 85 countries and his extensive career of 50 years has given Enrique a great knowledge of the world’s music, as well as a sense of respect and understanding of all people. This experience makes him not only a versatile artist, but a true citizen of the world.
Enrique is one of the world’s best-loved, free-spirited acoustical guitarists. Originally from Colombia, Enrique has continued to bless us with his energy and passion for life. His performances are joyful and he keeps audiences spellbound with his seemingly infinite skill and the sweet notes from his guitar.
In addition to symphony concerts, radio and television appearances, worldwide, Enrique has shared his music with the school children of the State of Washington as a touring artist for the Washington State Arts Commission Cultural Enrichment Program since 1981. This opportunity has amplified his love for children, emotion that it is very obvious in the dedication of his efforts, time and donations to numerous foundations and organizations that directly benefit them.
With impeccable elegance, warm personality and great ability to communicate, Enrique captivates his audiences with his charismatic performances and his sound demonstrates the true freedom of music.
