Richie, Brooklyn-born but raised in Puerto Rico, embarked on his journey as a professional percussionist already at the age of 13 and was the youngest musician to ever travel with a band outside Puerto Rico. Since then, he has played with some of the most celebrated artists in Latin music, performed on several Grammy Award-winning records and continued to perfect his musical voice.
The Latin Cuban Drums EZX features a handpicked collection of drums and a selection of mounted percussion pieces such as bells, woodblocks and a timbale. It was all captured at the famed Sear Sound Studios in New York by a team with a much-prominent status in the broad field of Latin music: Grammy Award-winning and Emmy-nominated engineer Dave Kowalski and drummer Robby Ameen. 2b1af7f3a8
