Lino G rocha on SoundBetter

I've had over twenty five years experience in the music industry as a performer and recording artist. I've collaborated with artists from diverse styles and genres of music, nationally and internationally. I'd like to offer my services as a vocalist, in whichever form required, as well co-operating with ideas/composing.

My main profession is as singer/songwriter/percussionist. Venezuelan born of Portuguese heritage and raised in the UK, I began my musical career in the late eighties performing with some of the top national/international Afro-Latin bands/artists including Roberto Pla's Latin Ensemble, La Clave De Londres, Salsa Celtica, Charlie Palmieri, Giovanni Hidalgo, Grupo Guaco, Yuri Buenaventura, Tito Allen and Juan de Marcos of Afro- Cuban All Stars to name a few.

My taste for the broader aspect of music has led me to collaborate with a diversity of artists such as Spain's renown flamenco guitarist Pepe Havichuela, top rock band Danza Invisible, Canadian singer/song writer Lorena Mckennitt, British born artist/composer Nitin Sawhney, Croatian based band Voices Of Nature, Scottish based Salsa Celtica as well as top pop acts such as The Pet Shop Boys and Matt Bianco, among others.

My vocal abilities can easily blend with various genres as and when required. These can be from soulful subtlety to urban rasping rap and all the way to street-wise Salsa or the passion of Fado, Bossa Nova, Tango and anything else in between. Having different cultural experiences under my belt and command of the Portuguese, Spanish and English languages, I possess a diverse musical understanding.
