BlackRock Center for the Arts Free Summer Concert Series: Salsa
Not your everyday salsero, Marlow Rosado is a producer, composer, and pianist who incorporates elements of rock, hip-hop, reggaeton, and bachata into his salsa recordings and performances. After moving to Florida to earn a master’s degree in jazz education, Rosado began to share his love of music as a teacher while moonlighting conducting orchestras, producing recordings, and writing arrangements. A gig singing for Desmond Child — Songwriting Hall of Fame inductee and frequent associate of Aerosmith and Bon Jovi — led to work with Ricky Martin and Alejandra Guzmán. Rosado’s second solo album, Retro earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Tropical Latin Album.
