Colorful Sounds In Concert is a new Hispanic League Cultural initiative with a mission to reach out to the American audience in order to educate and develop a better understanding of the people of each country through their music, showcasing the differences among Latin Cultures.

Martínez received first place in the 1992 Colsubsidio National Guitar Concert competition in Colombia. The last 22 years have been devoted to music research, where he has been recognized for developing interpretation techniques and methods to approach music knowledge   in an original, deep and efficient way.
