Jaime began playing the violin at the age of five. Born and raised in
communist Cuba, he was given many opportunities-including an offer
to study in Moscow with some of the greatest musicians of our time-if
only he and his family would renounce their belief in God. They
refused. When Jaime was ten, miraculously, his family was given the
opportunity to leave the country.
They came to the United States, where Jaime received a Christian
education and violin lessons with eminent violinist and teacher Cyrus
Forough. But Jaime dreamed of being a missionary doctor, and in 1994
he entered the University of Illinois School of Medicine. In 1996, he
left medical school and a promising medical career to follow God’s call
to devote his life to full-time music ministry.
Since 1988 he has traveled over 6 million air miles and has played on 6
continents and in over 80 countries (he’s waiting for an invitation to
play for penguins in Antarctica to visit all 7 continents). He has
recorded and released 17 albums.
