The classical guitarist Berta Rojas, vastly popular on Youtube and a Latin Grammy winner, has called off a European tour after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. She writes: ‘Dear people, for health reasons I’ve had to cancel this week’s European tour. A few days ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer in an early stage, so I have begun the necessary medical treatment.’

We wish Berta a speedy recovery.

    Desde California rezo por tu recuperacion. Tu musica y tu interpretacion del creador y maestro Agustin Barrios es espectacular y unica en el mundo. Tu acaricias la guitarra que transmite tus emociones y las emociones de todos los que te apreciamos, porque en resumen somos todos Berta y somos todos Agustin. Un abrazo a la distancia Berta y que Dios te bendiga ahora y siempre…

Wish you fast recovery, strength and hope. With all my love
