The United Nations for Youth have designated Piraí Vaca as the “Most Outstanding Bolivian Living Abroad”; he was named “World Class Bolivian” by the Latin American Press Association and the Bolivian Association of Press Workers; and he has been acknowledged as the “Most Successful Bolivian Abroad” by the Escuela Europea de Negocios, the European Business School in Bolivia. He has received the “Recognition for Artistic Endeavour and Bolivian Integration” from the Municipal Governments of El Alto, La Paz, Potosí and Montero, and the Gold Medal from the Municipal Government of Santa Cruz, awarded to illustrious citizens.
He was also elected “Outstanding Young Bolivian” by the Junior Chamber of Commerce, to mention just some of the many prizes he has been awarded.
Born in Bolivia, Piraí Vaca studied with Jesús Ortega at the Instituto Superior de Arte, or University of Arts, in Havana, Cuba, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in music with a specialty in guitar and a postgraduate degree in Renaissance music, winning the prize for the most outstanding graduate of the year. He continued his studies with Manuel Barrueco in the United States, and subsequently with Hubert Käppel at the Superior Conservatory of Music in Cologne, Germany.
