Pepe Romero, together with his family, The Romero Guitar Quartet, spent the early part of their career elevating the guitar to the forefront of classical music. For their lifetime of dedication, they were knighted by the King of Spain. Now with six-time GRAMMY® winner Daniel Ho, Pepe Romero embarks on a similar journey to help pioneer a new genre: classical 'ukulele.
