ABRAHAM SAENZ

ABRAHAM SAENZ

 

An amazing bassist of Peruvian descent, Abraham Saenz began his career in NY's specialized high school for the arts (LaGuardia H.S. for the Performing Arts).

 

He furthered his studies in schools like Harlem School of the Arts for jazz and Harbor Conservatory for Latin music in which Abraham was awarded full scholarships.

 

He began playing with local salsa bands at the age of 16. Eventually, at 17, Abraham joined Juan Carlos Formell's changui quartet where Abraham began extensive studies of Cuban music.

 

With only a couple of years experience under his belt, he managed to earn a spot in the premier salsa record label band, the RMM orchestra under the direction of Isidro Infante. (The RMM orchestra was to the Latin scene as the Funk Brothers were to Motown.)

 

Being the youngest member of this band gave him the opportunity to learn from the great Isidro Infante and travel the world. With the RMM orchestra, he collaborated in the Latin Grammy award-winning concert for Best Salsa Performance, "Celia and Friends: A Night Of Salsa."

 

Abraham has graced the main stage at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre playing for Pablo Cabrera's musical ''Quien Mato a Hector Lavoe?” and Carmen Rivera's "La Lupe: My Life, My Destiny."

 

He has recorded, performed, and collaborated with musical figures such as Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Alvaro Torres, Tito Nieves, DLG, Lisette Melendez, Isidro Infante, and many more.

 

He has also performed in various festivals in the United States, Peru, Australia, Colombia, Honduras, Mexico, Spain, Italy, and in the Caribbean Islands, such as the Tri-C Jazz Festival, El Festival National del Callao, Kalalu Festival of St. Lucia, La Feria de Cali and the Bacardi Sydney Festival among others.

 

Currently, Abraham can be seen as a member of such musical groups and artists as Jimmy Sabater Jr. y Los Salseros del Hudson, Kevin Ceballo, Groupo Caribe, and the world's best charanga band, Orquesta Broadway, in some of the most famous venues in New York City.
