Luisito was born with a bang, and the fireworks that
are common on the 4th of July. He was raised in
Hoboken, New Jersey. He now lives in Allentown Pa.
where he is focusing on his singing career.
The proximity of New York City, across the Hudson
river where salsa started in the sixties influenced
Luisito's formative years listening to all the salsa
legends of the decade.
His appreciation for the greats of the era, especially
the members of the Fania All Stars along with his
Puerto Rican roots, inspired Luisito to pursue a singing
career in this genre of Latin music.
In 1996 the legendary Larry Harlow from Fania All Stars
hired Luisito Rosario to be his lead vocalist for his
orchestra. It's been nine successful years, and they
are still going strong. They recently performed in
Caracas, Venezuela to thousands of salsa lovers. Luisito
recorded "Tumba Y Bongo" in 2002 for Larry Harlow's 35th
anniversary cd where he along with Mr. Nestor Sanchez
recorded all the background vocals.
In 1996 Luisito joined the popular salsa band in New York city
" Grupo hechizo", and recorded lead vocals in their 1998
cd "Sin Limites"which charted in the Top Five of the New
York city record pools. Luisito toured the Caribbean Islands
and the US as Hechizo's lead vocalist.
Luisito's popularity exploded in 1999 when he toured Europe,
and the US with Los Hermanos Moreno.
Luisito teamed up with Mambo City Music LTD in 2001,
and launched his first solo career with "Jurame" showcasing
his salsa roots. The cd includes arrangements by Cuto Soto
and Lucho Cueto whom have arranged for Marc Anthony
and Tito Nieves.
Today Luisito has won the devotion of fans in Europe, the
Caribbean Islands, South America, and the USA.
Luisito is currently recording his second cd showcasing the
type of salsa that's popular with the hard core salseros.
This new production will include Charanga , Son, Mambo,
Guajira and just straight forward old school style salsa! But
very special to Luisito, will be a song dedicated to the late
queen of salsa "Celia Cruz", may she rest in peace. This cd
will be dedicated to all the salsa lovers of the world.
For Luisito salsa has always been popular, even before
Ricky Martin's" La Vida Loca ". Luisito says "salsa is
who we are, it is part of our culture. Salsa keeps our Latino
communities united. It brings us happiness and feeds our soul "
