As a guitarist, Alejo de los Reyes is equally active in the field of Argentine popular music (especially, Argentine tango) and of classical guitar.
His career as a concert guitarist, which began at age 11 in his hometown of Chivilcoy (Argentina), has led him to perform in many cities in Argentina, Spain, Switzerland and Italy.
Among his most important European concerts are his solo appearances at the "Les jeudis de la guitare" and "Amarcordes" concert series (Switzerland), and at the Andrés Segovia Foundation and the José Luis Romanillos Guitar Makers Association (Spain).
He currently produces and hosts the streaming show "La Posta", an hour-long show in which he interviews the most relevant artists of Argentine popular music. It has featured such musicians as Nicolás "Colacho" Brizuela, Rudi Flores, Hugo Rivas and César Stroscio, and it has reached more than 90,000 viewers in Argentina and the world.
He is also the producer and artistic director of the "A la luz de la guitarra" concert series, which has featured outstanding guitarists of the Argentine and international scene in over a dozen editions.
He started his musical training under his parents, both guitarists, most particularly his father, Argentine classical guitarist Oscar Rubén de los Reyes. He continued his studies at the Alberto Williams Conservatory in his hometown and, later on, at the National University for the Arts (Universidad Nacional de Arte, UNA) and the Manuel de Falla Music Conservatory (Conservatorio Superior de Música Manuel de Falla), under María Bello and Jorge Biscardi.
Meeting luthier Luc Breton and harpsichordist Michel Kiener in Switzerland prompted him to study the romantic guitar, which features frequently in his solo concerts and in his Argentine popular music projects.
In 2011, he was awarded first place in the María Luisa Anido International Guitar Competition, held in San Lorenzo (Argentina).
He has played nine international tours around Italy, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Lithuania, Switzerland and Israel with different groups, including his tango trio, Fulanos de Tal.
As the director and leader of his own ensemble, Cuarteto De los Reyes, he has recorded two albums, with singers Rubén Llaneza (a singer of the Joaquín Do Reyes orchestra in the 1950s) and Paula Serrano. He has also recorded three albums with Fulanos de Tal.
In 2011, he recorded his first solo album, "Tierra querida", entirely composed of his arrangements of classical tangos.
In 2017, he released his second album, "Sobretarde" (RGS Music), devoted entirely to the work of iconic Argentine guitarist and composer Abel Fleury.
