About Carlitos Medrano :

Born and raised in Cuba, Carlitos came to the
US after having trained with one of Cuba's
most famous congueros, Jose Luis
“Changuito” Quintana. While in Cuba, he
played extensively with some of Havana's
best known Latin Jazz and Salsa groups, and
since coming to the US has played with many
of the Bay Area's finest Latin groups.

After extensive participation in various musical groups, he decided to
start his own projects with local Bay Area musicians; Cuban-style salsa
performed by Sabor De Mi Cuba where he debuts his musical talents
through original songwriting and composition. The fundamental
characteristics of this project are fusions of Afro-Cuban roots influenced
by world music. Sabor De Mi Cuba hopes to bring forth edginess to local
exponents of music in the Bay Area. In December 2012, he decided to
create his own recording entitled Sabor De Mi Cuba, where he
experimented with composition and arrangements. The project was
recorded and mastered in the prestigious Egrem Studios in Havana, Cuba.
According to Tom Ehrlich of Magazine, Sabor De Mi Cuba “is a
strong recording, full of elaborate, innovative arrangements, interesting
use of chorus, rumba and jazz influenced dance music... The result is a
beautiful, swinging recording which should establish Carlitos as a
composer, percussionist and band leader to be reckoned with. “
