In honor of his father’s 100th birthday anniversary, Tito Puente, Jr. pays homage to the unforgettable legacy of the iconic “Nuyorican” musician, Tito Puente.

The younger Puente, a multifaceted artist of Puerto Rican heritage, continues the tradition set by his father. Tito Puente, Sr. was not only a percussionist, composer, and bandleader but also an influential figure in American music history, earning the title “The King of Latin Music” throughout his illustrious five-decade career.

A multi-talented artist of Puerto Rican descent, Puente was a percussionist, composer, songwriter, recording artist, and bandleader. With a career spanning five decades, he is often referred to as “The King of Latin music.”

He is joined by bandleader Marlow Rosado, the two-time Grammy Award-winner and a maestro in blending Latin rhythms with contemporary sounds.  

“Rosado’s band delivers a performance that’s nothing short of electrifying, infusing passion and energy into every note.” – The Miami Herald
