Born in the Bronx in 1952, Roberto began
his percussion journey at the early age of
9 while sitting in on jam sessions with the older congeros in Crotona Park. Quickly surpassing his park mentors Roberto
began playing professionally with virtually every group from Jersey to the Catskills. Roberto has performed with such greats
as Chick Corea, Chucho Valdez, Eddie Palmieri and Andy Gonzales.

Influences: Giovanni Hidalgo, Tito Puenta, Cal Tdjader, Mongo Santa Maria, Eddie Palmieri and the Fort Apache Band.
