Latin Jazz & Salsa, bossa nova, bolero, funk, soul, old school RnB, producer, arranger, composer, pianist and singer.
Commercial quality productions with unlimited revisions. Afrolatino music is first characterized by rhythm, and this is based on LA CLAVE, this is the key or code of the original Afro Cuban music. That is why it is important to have the sense and absolute knowledge of the genre to be able to produce it with mastery and perfection... taking care above all that there are organic elements (congas, timbales, bongo, guiro, maracas, etc.)
All this together with the harmonic domain, and the aptitude of SONERO (lyrical improvisation) results in a work of the best quality that allows me to offer you endless possibilities to produce all the salsa styles or fusion them with other rhythms and elements. I'm professional arranger, composer, pianist and sonero.
When we're talking about music, I always think that sound is worth a thousand words, that's why I invite you to check my audios so that you have a more accurate idea of my work. I will attend you with pleasure!
*** I am a "Salsero" but I have a strong influence from soul and old school rhythm & blues, and I have done several works in these genres and their derivatives, so I am also here to serve you in this area with the same quality. ***

Top quality work every time. Highly recommended!
Luchito is an amazing creative I’ve been blessed to create with. I highly recommend my friend to you - you’ll not be disappointed! He knows music and will work to bring a smile to your face and gratitude for using him.
It is rare that you come across an artist with a level of talent that reaches from a performer arraigneer and producer. Luchito not only can give you insight on your musical project but he offers friendly advice as if he has been your best friend for years.
Luchito is a very talented and gifted, well-rounded vocalist and artist. I highly recommend him for your project. He gets the job done and then some. You can't go wrong. I believe Luchito is the best choice. Thanks again Luchito!
Luchito is an incredibly talented musician. I have hired him for a couple of projects and have been blown away. I believe his specialty is Salsa, Jazz, Rock en Espanol, etc. I had him work on a Latin-Soul track and another that was more of a Cuban Salsa track. Both exceeded my expectations. Aside from his writing and arranging, he has an amazing voice. He's go a project out where he does Ruben Blades arrangements that's killing. Ruben Blades actually reposted Luchito's project! He's also a great communicator. All around exceptional find for remote collaboration.
