Chano Pozo was an Afro-Cuban jazz percussionist, singer, dancer and composer, playing an essential role in the foundation of Latin Jazz.

“Manteca” which he recorded with Dizzy Gillespie, who considered him the greatest drummer he had ever heard, marked a turning point in Jazz history. This renowned and explosive theme was a revolution in the rhythmic concept of the North American popular music.

“Chano changed the musical taste in the United States.”
