Rafael Benatar moved from Caracas, Venezuala to London where he studied music. He eventually moved to Madrid, Spain where he fell in love with his second passion, magic. In this interview Rafael talks about his life's path and his decisions; his friendship with Juan Tamariz, Ascanio and others; how to practice; creativity; the Escuela Magica de Madrid, and much, much more.
This podcast begins and ends with music played and recorded by Rafael on his Baroque Lute. The selection you hear is Allegro Sonata V - Falkenhagen. I would be glad to post this song in its entirety at the request of you listeners. Just let me know.
