Album Notes
Isaac Felipe Delgado Ramirez was the second child in a family of three born on September 11th, 1962 in Mariano in the city of Havana. Issac Delgado's childhood is greatly influenced by observing his eldest brother play guitar and also by witnessing the work and efforts of his mother who at that time was a very well-known actress performing regularly an the capital's theaters and sharing the stage with such legendary actors as Carlos Pous, Maria de los Angeles Santana, and Candita Quintana.

When he was 18 years old, Issac joins the group "Proyecto" at the request of the virtuoso pianist, Gonzalo Rubalcaba. The group's music, categorized by the modernization of old popular Cuban music, sparked Issac's innate love of music. It was at this point that he decided to study vocal technique with Mariana De Gonich, one of the best vocal instructors in the country.

He launches his professional career in 1983 as one of the members of the Orquestra de Pacho Alonso. It is in this orchestra that he tours internationally for the first time and makes his first recording produced by CBS in Spain. Issac became the soloist in the famous Tropicana cabaret spectacle. During his time as part of the show, he shared the stage with the percussionist Tata Guines, with the "Senora Sentimento" Elena Burke, and with her daughter Malena Burke and the quartet Los Papines.

He became the vocalist in the group NG LA BANDA which was created with the intention of bringing together some of the country's most talented instrumentalist to create a contemporary sound out of the fusion of traditional influences and popular contemporary rhythms. He signs a contract as an exclusive figure under Ralph Mercado's label, RMM, which exposes him to greater international recognition and success.

Issac travels to the United States to perform in the Festival of Salsa in New York's Madison Square Garden with artists such as Celia Cruz, El Canario, and Grupo Niche. While in New York, he also performed at Hostos University, at S.O.B.'s, and at Jimmy's Cafe.

A review of his performance: "when he sang, he sounded as if he'd never strained at anything in his life...Mr. Delgado was rhythmically imperturbable, and when he sang against just the drums, his voice never faltered, concrete and hard and sure of its was the Cuban form of the blues."
- Peter Watrous, The New York Times

With this CD "Prohibido" Isaac is rounding out an excellent career which keeps achieving new heights. Now living in Tampa, Florida he expects to continue touring and recording heavily in the future.
