Levántate o Despídete
In 2009, I graduated with a Master of Music in Afro Latin Music from California State University, Los Angeles. Over the years I have maintained ties with the department head, Dr. Paul DeCastro. Glad to have had a chance to sing “Cobarde” as an alumni with the Cal State LA Afro Latin Ensemble on their coming album “Levantate o Despidete”.
The Afro Latin Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Paul De Castro, the Cal State LA Afro Latin ensemble provides graduate and undergraduate students the opportunity to study and perform music from the rich traditions of Salsa and Afro latin music. This CD is the culmination of years of hard work and features students and alumni of the Master of Music in Afro latin Music at California State University, Los Angeles. Special guests on this recording include Calixto Oviedo (percussion) and Josiel Perez (trumpet).
