Roberto Quintero

Venezuelan-born percussionist/LP endorser Roberto Quintero began playing percussion at age 16 and was, like countless other percussionists, influenced by "El Rey del timbal", Tito Puente. Though his first instrument was a pair of LP bongos, he soon began playing LP congas and timbales. He chose LP instruments because they provided him with a "conversation of sounds" to make music with, and he has since added djembe, batas, shekeres, shakers, and other LP instruments to create music "for all languages."

Among his more notable performance/recording credits are Oscar de Leon, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Eddie Palmieri, Ray Barretto, Timbalaye, Cachao, Gerardo Rosales and Gato Barbieri. Other current and upcoming releases include projects with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Bobby Watson, Bobby Sanabria, and Issac Delgado, as well as a European tour with La India and recent recordings with Marc Anthony.

Roberto's "in-the-pocket" style of playing, along with his ability to play many different instruments, has enabled him to keep busy working with many high profile artists in Latin music.
