Percussionist for Disney's The Lion King, Cirque du Soleil, multiple grammy award winning Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra and most importantly, YOUR next project!
Hi! My name is Raphael. I've been playing percussion professionally for close to two decades. I've performed with top Broadway shows (Disney's The Lion King) and some of the biggest touring productions in the world (Cirque du Soleil).
My training includes traditional drumming from Cuba, Africa, India and Brazil as well as a Master's Degree in orchestral (classical) music performance. I can provide your tracks with straightforward great feeling grooves, virtuosic percussion breakdowns, orchestral accents, or melodic percussion. It all depends on what your project needs and what can I do help it reach its maximum potential!
I also work as a composer and recently created the entire score to the play 'Tropical Secrets: Holocaust Refugees in Cuba.' Currently streaming on broadway on demand.

A talented percussionist with a heart of gold...
I have performed with Raphael several times in Las Vegas, NV. His sense of rhythm is very unique. He brings awesome colors to the music. He has also recorded congas and djembe in a few of my songs. As always, Raphael was very creative and punctual. Be well Maestro.🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿
