Rolando Sanchez & The Alta All Stars Latin Band

BIOGRAPHY

"Rolando Sanchez and Salsa Hawaii is exhilarating… stimulating… energizing… intensifying!!"

~Angela Posillico, ‘LA’Ritmo

"Sanchez is also a melodic blur on congas, timbales and other percussion instruments...Contagious, toe-tapping, heart-thumping stuff."
~Wayne Harada, Honolulu Advertiser

"Latin music has a lot of thanks to give to people like Rolando who are the ambassadors of our music, the world over."
~El Sabor de Nuestra Musica CDs Views & Reviews, LATIN STYLE Magazine
Rolando was born in Masaya, Nicaragua, to a musically artistic family; his father, an accomplished songwriter, pianist, and singer. His mother also played piano and sang as with most of his immediate family. His musical influence began at a very young age playing drums with neighborhood kids emanating the music of the time (i.e.: Beatles, Trini Lopez, Paul Anka, etc.)

His band has been featured in many television shows, specials and music videos in Hawaii and Tahiti, as well as numerous write-ups in National, International, and Local magazines, newspapers, trade magazines and periodicals. For the last 20 years, they have accumulated an astounding collection of awards, certificates of recognition, and proclamations.

Sanchez is a musician that surpasses the boundaries of traditional sounds, using a mixture of both Latin Jazz and Latin Rock. Playing his timbales and congas in a mystifying and enchanting beat, his audience goes wild, dancing uncontrollably to his music. His music is alive and contagious, containing something pleasing to all musical tastes.
