As the lead vocalist for various salsa, Latin jazz and Cuban groups such Salsamania, Color Latino and Nueva Vision, he toured Europe performing in internationally-renowned clubs and festivals such as “Folkest” in Italy, the “Jazzmeile Fest” in Berlin and clubs like “Quasimodo”, “Franzclub” and “Floz” en Berlin and the “Fabrik” in Hamburg. In 1994, he came to Miami, where he began to work as the lead singer for the group “Cafe Nostagia” in the internationally popular Calle 8 club of the same name. With that musical ensemble he recorded two CD”s “Cafe Nostalgia LIVE!” and “Te dí la vida entera”, the latter making it to the top of the charts in Paris. In 2000 he led a traditional Cuban music band named “Buenaventura” and in 2001 led his own band.
