ABOUT

BIO

Yariff is best know for his remarkable domain of the electric guitar and his intense-feeling playing; the Guatemalan born-and-raised, self-taught musician showed a very intense appeal for music from a young age, but it wouldn’t be until a life-changing motorcycle accident occurred when he was 15 years old that he would find himself investing most of his 24 month recovery into learning to play the guitar; unknowingly, he was learning a craft that later in his life would bring much love and joy but also many tests and sacrifices.

Influenced mainly by Carlos Santana and Slash from Guns N Roses, the 28 year-old hard-working musician eventually found himself playing with top-line musicians, the highlight of which happened in 2015 when he played with multi Latin Grammy-Award-Winners Rock band “Maná” in Guatemala City putting him in the spotlight and throwing him into the big leagues in the Latin movement.
Looking to expand on American audiences Yariff is currently in the U.S. working on the recording of his first solo album.
