The great sonero of salsa

Gilberto Santa Rosa has captivated people for more than 45 years with his velvety voice and inexhaustible vitality.

Many of his colleagues consider him one of the greatest soneros. He himself defined a sonero as “a salsa singer who has the ability to improvise and who, in addition, has a mastery of rhythm that allows him to 'play with the clave”, during an interview with a Peruvian radio station in 2018.

“Many of the singers of the so-called‘ traditional salsa’ movement were recognized as great soneros without having the mastery of improvisation. Being a skill dominated by few, improvising soneros were always the minority”, he added.

The artist was one of the first to merge salsa with classical music and that creativity was shown in the 90s during his concert "Salsa Sinfónica" held at the Centro de Bellas Artes de San Juan de Puerto Rico accompanied by the Orchestra Symphonic.

That concert was so successful that he performed at Carnegie Hall in New York in 1995 and at Lincoln Center in that city with his compatriot Andy Montañez in 1997.

Gilberto Santa Rosa has recorded around 40 albums with which he achieved important recognitions, such as platinum records, nominations for the Grammy Awards, and Premio Lo Nuestro. He has 6 Latin Grammy Awards and has sold more than 5 million records in the United States.
