With more than three decades of musical history, Tito Nieves, the “Pavarotti” of Salsa, has released his 30th studio album. Mi Ultima Grabacion. Tito’s new album has its roots with the Salsa and Tropical music that have made him an icon. Having performed with famed orchestras such as Orquesta Cimarron, the Hector Lavoe Orchestra and Conjunto Clasico, he set out for a career as a solo artist. His first album Classic, included the hit “Sonambulo.” Throughout his career, Nieves has incorporated English to his recordings defying the language barrier with his versatility and crossover appeal. Included among the timeless are smash hits such as “Can you stop the Rain” and “You bring me Joy.” However, the Latin anthem of the 90’s that sealed his place in pop culture history was “I Like it Like That,” which transformed the original version into an energetic powerhouse with vibrant Latin overtones catapulting him into mainstream success.

One of New York City’s top Latin DJ’s, Alex Sensation was born in Bogotá, Colombia. A famed DJ at numerous New York nightclubs, his musical taste appeals to a broad audience that includes various nationalities spanning the world of Tropical and Caribbean music. Celebrated for his hit radio shows on famed Spanish radio station, La Mega 97.9 FM, Alex Sensation is one of Latin music’s tastemakers.
