With 33 years-career as project leader in Salsa Dura, Latin Jazz and World Music my orchestras can range from a small format to a big band.My musicians come from different countries, which give it a multicultural aspect. My musical concept is ample.

I've been a guest percussionist for bands and orchestras of different styles and genres: salsa, pop, jazz, R&B, soul, funk, latin, fusion.I've also recorded over 70 albums of other artists such as Bebo Valdes, Rosenberg Trio,Africando and Maite Hontelé, among others.

For years, I've been teaching percussion for many young talents.
Private lessons or group. Ongoing training, workshops or master classes.
