Leo Blanco is a Venezuelan pianist, arranger, and composer. Blanco grew up in Mérida, Venezuela, and was surrounded from an early age by Venezuelan folklore–a blend of African and European musical traditions–as well as by jazz, classical music and pop.
The Tito Puente Latin Music Series takes place in July and August at outdoor locations across Boston. The six-concert series is an infectious soundscape of salsa, bolero, danzón, Afro-Latin, Caribbean, jazz, funk, R&B, and more. Performers include Berklee faculty, students, alumni, and world-renowned artists from Puerto Rico, Cuba, Ecuador, Brazil, and throughout Latin America.
