Hugo Fattoruso, a composer and arranger, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, has had a profound effect on music that has touched upon shores far and wide. Endeavors such as Los Shakers, Opa, Grupo Del Cuareim, Los Pusilanimes, Trio Fattoruso, and his solo works, are endeared by those fortunate to know of his talent. Born and raised in Montevideo, Uruguay, the son of a musically rich father, Antonio, Hugo began learning the language of music at the same time he was learning to walk and talk. Growing in Uruguay, and neighbored by Argentina and Brazil, exposed him to a diverse array of musical colors and rhythms. The Afro-Uruguayan Candombe rhythm is somethng that is always burning in Hugo's heart and mind, naturally, and exemplified by this, his latest endeavor, Rey Tambor. Here Hugo, on electric keyboard and vocals, joins forces with his three young Candombe compadres, the energetic Nicolás, Fernando and Diego, together navigating Candombe to new and exciting frontiers.
