February 28, 2013

Marlow Rosado, the Music Director and pianist for the US Tour of the "Pacific Mambo Orchestra featuring Tito Puente, Jr." is the winner of the 2013 GRAMMY Award for Best Tropical Album for his most recent album, titled Retro. Retro goes back in time to explore iconic salsa musicians from the past decade, who are remembered as a pillar of the genre today. It also embraces the genre's evolution, recognizing the new "salseros" of the day and blending all sounds and talents together for a spectacular outcome.

The Los Angeles Times praised Rosado for lining up "an impressive group of artistic cohorts for Retro," among them Tito Puente, Jr.

Rosado has produced, composed and written hits in a variety of musical styles, such as Hip-Hop, Rock, Merengue, Bachata, Reggaeton and most notable, Salsa. He is continuously sought out by Latin artists for his musical arrangement skills, virtuosic piano skills, and remarkable talent directing bands and orchestras.

"I will forever feel that I did a little something to help the music I love so much and that is very satisfying...I want salsa to once again wear the crown it once did and I feel today that we are a bit closer - Que viva la salsa!" - Marlow Rosado upon winning the GRAMMY
