Less time to blog doesn't mean I don't have anything to share...but as I reach the mid-century mark I'm hoping friends and fans will join me for my 50th Birthday Celebration at Yoshi's San Francisco on Sunday, May 27th at 7pm. If you're staying in town Memorial Day Weekend please come enjoy an evening of music with friends and special guests. Click here for tickets and info. Hope to see you there!
Rebeca Mauleón is an internationally acclaimed musician, bandleader, composer, GRAMMY-nominated producer and educator as well as author and reviewer. As a pianist Mauleon follows a long-standing tradition of Afro-Cuban and Latin Jazz performers, and her expertise in Afro-Caribbean and Latin American music places her at the forefront of the musicological community, resulting in a multidimensional career spanning over three decades. From her recording and performing work with an array of Grammy-winning legends including Tito Puente, Carlos Santana, Steve Winwood, Arturo Sandoval, Joe Henderson and Mickey Hart, to her diverse compositional projects (ranging from symphonic works and Afro-Cuban jazz to music for film, television and computer software companies), and her critically-acclaimed recordings, books and articles, Mauleon has carved a distinct niche as one of the most multi-faceted artists on the world music scene.
