Trazos

Guido’s debut album. It was recorded at Airtime Studios in Bloomington, Indiana in 2013 and released independently the following year. It contains a compilation of original solo, trio, and quartet compositions, plus an adaptation of a late medieval ballade by Anthonello de Caserta. In 2018 it was reissued without the ballade but with a new piece (“Epílogo”) for guitar and drums, featuring Puerto Rican percussionist, Harold Agosto.

Erio

Erio was an experimental guitar trio formed in 1999 and led by Guido Sánchez-Portuguez, with Luis Alfredo Sánchez and Edgar Sequeira. The trio performed Guido’s music with regularity between 1999 and 2001, and then intermittently between 2001 and 2003. In 2020 Guido Sánchez-Portuguez released a CD containing four previously unreleased tracks recorded in Audio Arte Studios in 2000 and 2003, plus a live radio show appearance from 2000.
