On August 3, 2005 I had the honor of having an exhibition of my photographs
of Tito Puente, a retrospective of images taken over a span of more than 40
years. This exhibit took place at La Casa de la Cultura in Boston, Massachusetts
and was initiated by musician and friend Alex Alvear, and Vanessa Calderon-Rosado
from this cultural center.
In addition to my photo exhibition, I
was delighted to have the opportunity to
present "From My Basement to Bangkok, The Creation
of a Percussion Industry" at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in
Boston. This slide show is a history of the creation of Latin Percussion, the
company I founded in 1964. Special thanks to Dean Anderson of Berklee for making
this happen - and it was wonderful to meet the new visionary President of Berklee
School of Music, Roger H. Brown.
