Featuring Tito Puente Jr 

Inspirado por Carlos Calle, un nativo ecuatoriano que emigró a los Estados Unidos a los 3 años y se unió al USMC a los 17 años. Comenzó su pasión por la música a los 15 años cantando con una banda local y formando su propia banda tocando teclados en la escuela secundaria. Después de regresar de una gira de USMC - Marines  regreso a su ciudad natal de Yonkers, Nueva York regresó con su amor por la música y comenzó a cantar y actuar nuevamente en lugares locales de Nueva York en los 80's despues de haber sido injustamente encarcelado pero eso no lo detuvo..

En 1987, consiguió un trabajo con un grupo de marketing para CAMEL & Salem Promotions le entregó la cuenta Camel Joe para el mercado hispano trabajando con el promotor de música y el icono Ralphy Mercado (RMM) en la industria latina junto con Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Gran Combo, Grupo Niche , Ruben Blades, Oscar De Leon, Joe Arroyo, Papo Lucca, Tito Nieves, El Canario entre otros íconos musicales.

En 2006, décadas después, después de retirarme de la música para mi familia, me encontré con Tito Puente Jr. en Miami en un evento en el que estaba recibiendo un premio en nombre de su padre. En ese momento, Tito Jr. no estaba actuando y finalmente nos sorprendió con su Movimiento Mambo rindiendo homenaje a su difunto padre "Tito Puente El Rey Del Timbal".

Un verdadero desafío jugar con el nombre de su padre. Sin embargo, estaba decidido y evolucionando para tomar el reinado y pasar sobre la antorcha de Mambo King y continuar su legado.

Despidiendo el  2017 estando en homeless shelter

Me invitaron a un local para terminar el año con Tito Puente Jr.

Y Tito me dijo que estaba listo para hacer la canción.

Sorprendentemente, obtuve el apoyo de mi gran amigo Luis Disla y mi Brother Marlow Rosado con el apoyo de Tito Puente Jr. y resto es historia. 

Agradecido con Dios y Mi Equipo!

La Salsa Vive!

Inspired by Carlos Calle an Ecuadorian Native that migrated to the USA at age 3 and joined the USMC @ 17yrs old. 

Began his passion for music at age 15 singing with a local band and forming his own band playing keyboards in high school. 

After returning from a tour from USMC returning to his hometown of Yonkers, NY returning to his love for music began singing and performing in New York local venues again in the 80's after being set up and incarcerated didn't stop him from persuing his passion for music.

In 1987 landing a job with a Marketing Group for CAMEL & Salem Promotions handed the Camel Joe Account for the Hispanic Market working with Music Promoter and Icon Ralphy Mercado, David Maldonado, Juan Toro (RMM) in the Latin Industry alongside Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Gran Combo, Grupo Niche, Ruben Blades, Oscar De Leon, Joe Arroyo, Papo Lucca, Tito Nieves, El Canario among other musical icons.

In 2006 decades later after my divorce I returned to music.  Eventually I came across Tito Puente Jr. in Miami at an event where he was receiving an award on behalf of his father The Late Tito Puente and I recognized him and he sat with us at the awards ceremony. At that time Tito Jr. was not performing and eventually he surprised me with his Mambo Movement paying Tribute to his late father “ Tito Puente El Rey Del Timbal. 

 

A real challenge to play up to his father’s name. However he was determined and evolving to take the reign and passing over the torch of Mambo King Legacy!

New Years Eve 2017 I while I was  in a homeless shelter after a bad relationship. I got invited to a local venue to end the year with Tito Puente Jr.  As Tito Puente Jr was setting up at Ball & Chain  he told he was ready to do the song and I was Super Suprised Again?

Amazingly enough I got the support from my great friend Luis Disla whom new alot of my personal life decided to help me  along was also  my Bro Marlow Rosado and with the support of Tito Puente Jr.  I then brought together my network of Musical Guro's from Puerto Rico, Republica Dominicana, Ecuador, Venezuela,Cuba,Colombia & Nicaragua and The Mambo King Tribute was born.

Thus sharing the origin of Salsa from Mambo and Cha Cha Cha among other latin musical masterpieces that Tito Puente inspired many from all over the world.

I am grateful to GOD and my Salsa Team that made this possible.

Salsa Lives 4Ever....
