Tony Vega is a Grammy nominated internationally known salsa singer and bandleader. Vega was born in the town of Salinas, Puerto Rico into a family of musicians and therefore learned how to play the bongos and conga at an early age.  Vega was one of the new breed of artists emerging from Puerto Rico salsa in the '80s, and has worked with many of the biggest stars of salsa, from pioneers of the genre, to the present. It has been said that " Tony Vega defines its music as salsa class and swing with a fresh sound , modern, uncomplicated , with a romantic touch and traditional roots." Vega's beautiful voice and his innate ability to play contemporary salsa in the best tradition of the classic soneros have been polished and refined over his 19 years as an artist,  first as a drummer and then as a singer. Until now, Vega took part in the recording of 17 albums , including the last four with his own band and record company RMM .
