Jaime began playing the violin at the age of five. Born and raised in communist Cuba, he was offered many opportunities-including offers 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 Cyrus Forough, a student of David Oistrakh and Josef Gingold. But Jaime dreamed of being a missionary medical doctor, and in 1994, was accepted by University of Illinois School of Medicine. In 1996, he left medical school and a promising medical career to devote himself to full-time music ministry.
Since 1988 he has traveled over 4 million air miles and has played in North, Central and South America, Europe, Australia, Asia and the Soviet Union (5 Continents in all and over 25 countries). He has recorded and released 15 albums.
