Dear partners,

I look forward to meeting other artists and musicians who are interested in collaborating on new music together.

I am not bound by any particular musical style. I believe that a good melody can be arranged and shaped to fit different styles and genres. I am also interested in meeting musicians, artists and producers from different parts of the world who can enrich my musical universe and allow me to experience all the variety that the world of music has to offer.
I would also be happy to build working relationships with film producers, as many of my melodies are illustrative and go well with motion pictures or videos.

Please contact me directly if you would like to discuss using any of my current music, or to commission new pieces.

It has been my great honor to have worked with some of the best musicians of our time. I am delighted to have collaborated on a number of songs with the very gifted arranger Sergey Erokhin and the talented LA-based songwriter Andrew Paley. I am  also truly proud that my melodies have been used by musicians like pianist Chucho Valdes, a Grammy award winner and the founder of Cuba's well-known band "Irakere," and Joao Donato, the world-renowned Brazilian composer who is also a Grammy award winner, as well as a top Brazilian vocalist Emilio Santiago; famed bossa nova artists Leny Andrade and Wanda Sa; singer Carlos El Rumbero of the world-renowned "Gypsy Kings"; the great Russian guitar player Roman Miroshnichenko;  the gifted Russian singer Georgy Musheev, pianist and arranger Michael Link and many others.

I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart all of the talented partners who have helped me to bring my music to you.

Armando “Mandy” Cantero is one of the shinning stars that have been part of ensembles such as Pupy y los que Son Son or Charanga Forever. Mandy began to stand out by himself, and started to take his rightful place amongst the already well-established Cuban singers. He is currently making his debut as a solo artist with a totally new repertoire, hoping, as all artists like himself do, to push the boundaries even further. His first production as soloist, with a very personal touch and of course, deeply Cuban.

Emilio Santiago
Leny Andrade

Emilio Santiago, an excellent interpreter of sambas and other swinging musics, finally found his way to a massive popularity as a romantic singer: the Aquarelas Brasileiras project, coordinated by Roberto Menescal at Som Livre, brought Santiago seven LPs, national and international projection, and the sum of four million copies sold, along with six platinum records, seven gold ones, and the Sharp prize.

Between 1971 and 1975, he became a crooner in several ball orchestras like those of Anselmo Mazzoni's, Maestro Formiga's, and Ed Lincoln's. In 1973, Santiago recorded his first single, continuing to perform in nightclubs. His first LP (Emilio Santiago) came out in 1975. Several albums later, in 1982, he won the Rede Globo Festival with "Pelo Amor de Deus" (Paulo Bebetio/Paulinho Resende). Three years later, in the same festival, he was awarded Best Interpreter with the song "Elis Elis" (Estevan Natolo Jr./Marcelo Simoes). Established as a romantic interpreter, he has had high popularity in sophisticated productions like Perdido de Amor, a tribute to Dick Farney.

Leny Andrade (Leny de Andrade Lima - Jan 1st, 1943 Rio de Janeiro) acquired a solid reputation as a singer and improviser, acknowledged by the many top musicians who have performed with her. Leny Andrade’s eclectic style became better defined with the advent of bossa nova, through which she introduced jazz elements into her singing. Finally, she opted for a synthesis of samba-jazz that refutes much of the delicacy and attention to the lyrics as proposed by bossa nova, in favor of a more energetic interpretation.

She has had several hits on the Brazilian charts. In 2007 she shared a Latin Grammy Award with Cesar Camargo Mariano for Best MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira) Album "Ao Vivo".
