Samuel Torres

Samuel Torres é sem dúvidas um dos grandes músicos latinos da actualidade...

Born in Bogota, Colombia, Samuel graduated in Music Composition from Universidad Javeriana of Bogota. He started playing at age twelve and recalls learning a great deal from in-home jam sessions with friends of his musically inclined grand parents and relatives and began playing around with different bands in his hometown at age 14.

Although a classically trained percussionist, Samuel was drawn by thesound and rhythms of different styles, especially Latin and jazz. In 1998 he traveled to the United States, where he was contracted with Grammy Award Winner Arturo Sandoval with whom he continues to tour throughout the world.

Upon his arrival to the US Samuel has played with renowned jazz artists such as the late Tito Puente, Chick Corea, Poncho Sanchez, Pete Escovedo, Dave Valentin, Michael Brecker, Don Byron and Claudio Roditi amongst other. He has also performed as a guest of the Florida International University.
