Raul Agraz and Maneco Ruiz

You want to play Salsa . . . LISTEN TO THE CONGA!

Hip-Bone Music proudly brings an international flavor to our bone2pick series with a dynamic sit down featuring two of New York’s finest trumpet players, Raul Agraz and Maneco Ruiz. A native of Venezuela, Raul shares his thoughts on crafting a successful playing career in his native country and then repeating that in New York, his exceptional ability to fit into any and all musical environments, holding down the first trumpet chair on a long running hit Broadway show and developing his voice as a solo artist. The pride of Ponce, Puerto Rico, Maneco looks back on growing up in a family of trumpet players, the influence his late teacher Prof Fielder had on him, the keys to approaching latin music and how he became one of New York’s most versatile and in demand trumpet players. Great insights from two class acts. Enjoy!
