Fito Reinoso
Rumbero ~ Son ~ Buena Vista
For over a decade, Fito Reinoso has made the Bay Area his home and is the only Cuban born based sonero in the San Francisco Bay Area performing a variety of styles, from the most recent urban Havana grooves to timba to the classic son and cha-cha-cha, all with a voice reminiscent of the late and beloved legendary Cuban singer, Beny Mor?. Fito Reinoso's dynamic personality and showmanship has led him to collaborate with some of the top musicians who reside in Cuba and the United States. Most recently, he has been in the studio recording his fourth album showcasing Cuban talent such as Jose Luis Gomez (coro), Roberto Morris Amaya (trumpet) and Dileyvis Niche Romero (trumpet), as well as young Bay Area talent Matthew Lucas (congas), Colin Douglas (traps), Sam Bevan (bass), Bob Crawford (piano) and Patricio Angulo (timbal, musical director).

As well as being a talented Cuban sonero, Fito Reinoso is also an accomplished singer-songwriter. At a very young age, Fito Reinoso began playing tres and bass in the streets of Candekaria, in the province of Pinar Del Rio, and joined Orquesta Gloria de Cuba at the age of 12. He arrived to the United States in 1980 and soon began impacting the thriving Bay Area Latin Music scene.

Fito Reinoso has played with Cuban legends such as Francisco Aguabella, Armando Peraza, Carlos Patato Valdez and Israel Cachao Lopez, and has accompanied the greatest local musicians without ever loosing his strong ties with Cuba.
