Latin American music makes up the majority of his repertoire, but he also plays music from many European countries, singing in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Greek, German, and English.  To interpret his international repertoire, and give variety to his original compositions, Robert has become proficient on several stringed instruments from around the world, which he shares in many local performances.  Robert has been a featured performer at the Walker Art Center, the MIA, Orchestra Hall, the Dakota Jazz Club, and on several local television and radio stations, most notably in a performance alongside Chilean author Isabel Allende at the Fitzgerald Theatre for the MPR program ’Talking Volumes’.  International tour destinations include Paris, Florence, Madrid, Bern, Buenos Aires, Budapest, and Rio De Janeiro.
