Seventeen recordings as a soloist, 5 Latin Grammy nominations, one Grammy nomination and one Latin Grammy Award, collaborations with a diverse range of artists such as Gloria Estefan, Kenny Loggins, Dave Mathews, Herbie Hancock, Tito Puente, Paquito D’ Rivera and Arturo Sandoval, as well as performances with the Cleveland, Singapore, and New World Symphony Orchestras, are testament to Néstor Torres’ success and versatility.

Born in Puerto Rico, Mr. Torres moved to NYC in his teenage years where he studied at Mannes School of Music, and later at the New England Conservatory in Boston. While playing in Latin Orchestras there, he learned to improvise in a style of Cuban music called ‘Charanga’, which shaped and developed Torres’s melodic and danceable sound.

As a composer, his commissions include “Marta y Maria”, commissioned by St. Martha-Yamaha Concert Series; “Disarmament Suite”, by ICAP (International Committee of Artists for Peace), and “Successors”, commissioned by the Miami Children’s Chorus. The Center for the Study of Spirituality at Florida International University commissioned Torres to compose and perform the work “The Lotus Sutra of the Wonderful Law” on the occasion of the Dalai Lama’s lecture titled ‘Compassion – The Source of Happiness’. On 2010 Torres again performed for the Dalai Lama, this time his own composition “Saint Peter’s Prayer”, at Temple Emanu-El.
