    PAUL MAURIAT, world-renown musician left a pleasant impression in his brief stay in Lima. A mature man, even with a boyish look, he confessed himself a romantic by excellence. "Romantic music is now preferred all over the world against the violence wave and aggressivity of the new generation" he said... He's not without a reason.

    FEW KNOW that he started professionally at 17 years old, forming his youth band, where he performed in cabarets and "music halls". It was only in 1965, where he started his famous professional orchestra, where he developed his own style that marked, definitively, his personality as a musician. Soon he will be seen in a TV special.
