With Marimba One, everything is possible. The powerful and deep sound, the shiny and clear color, and the balance of the whole keyboard present a chance to create the best possible communication between the audience and the marimbist.
Conrado is from Alicante, Spain. At sixteen, Conrado turned to the marimba, taking lessons from international soloists Sisco Aparici in Valencia (Spain) and Katarzyna Myćka in Stuttgart (Germany). In 2011 he graduated honors.
In his young career, Conrado has already participated in numerous master classes with international marimba soloists, highlighting his participation in the International Katarzyna Myćka Marimba Academy.

At the age of eighteen, Conrado performed his first concert as a marimba soloist with the Brahms Society Symphony Orchestra and since then he’s been performing as a marimbist in concerts halls of Spain, Germany and Switzerland amongst others, premiering pieces for marimba and working with new composers such as Marcus Paus, Karlos C. Seva, Jarrod Cagwin or Arkadiusz Kątny. Moreover he works as a soloist together with important orchestras as Symphonic Orchestra of Alicante and Symphonic Orchestra of Córdoba.
