Born in Buenos Aires with Italian ancestry, Ramiro was exposed to music by attending the famous Colon Theater with his mother and developing a passion for music at an early age. Further, he studied with Professor Dumitru Goia at the Bucharest National Music University with a scholarship provided by the Romanian government.
