Rebeca Mauleon-Santana


Rebeca Mauleón has specialized in Afro-Caribbean music for over twenty years as a pianist, composer, arranger, author and educator. Firmly rooted in the Afro-Cuban tradition, Mauleón has recorded and performed with several luminaries in the Latin music scene, including Tito Puente, Carlos Santana, Israel "Cachao" López, Steve Turré, Carlos "Patato" Valdez, Francisco Aguabella, José Luis Quintana "Changuito," Giovanni Hidalgo, Joe Henderson, Armando Peraza, Walfredo de los Reyes, Orestes Vilató and the Machete Ensemble (of which she was co-musical director for nearly ten years). Her piano and vocal work are featured on several Grammy Award winning and nominated albums, including Tito Puente's "Goza Mi Timbal" (1990 Grammy Award Winner), and the 1995 Grammy Nominee "Ritmo y Candela", with Patato, Changuito and Orestes Vilató. In 1998 she recorded and co-wrote on Mickey Hart's recent recording entitled "Supralingua", and is musical director of the Planet Drum ensemble, having recently returned from a nationwide tour. In 1998, Rebeca received a Goldie Award for Artistic Excellence in Music by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and launched her powerhouse Round Trip group along with her debut CD, performing to sell-out and capacity crowds at the Monterey, San Francisco and San José Jazz Festivals, as well as the Stern Grove Summer Arts Festival, with an estimated 10,000 plus audience. Rebeca and Round Trip have a number of upcoming performances and tours slated for 1999.

As an educator, Rebeca is much in demand as a teacher and clinician throughout the US and Europe, conducting classes and lectures for Stanford University, City College of San Francisco, The Jazz School (Berekeley, Ca), the Stanford Jazz Workshop, I.A.J.E., Mills College, Monterey Jazz Festival, Banff Center for the Arts (Canada), Sibelius Academy and Pop and Jazz Conservatory (Finland) and others. She holds an MA in Composition from Mills College, and is the author of the critically acclaimed "Bible" of Salsa music, the Salsa Guidebook for Piano and Ensemble (© Sher Music, 1993), which has been incorporated as an official text by such renowned institutions as the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and is co-editor of the Latin Real Book (© Sher Music, 1997). Her newly-released 101 Montunos (© Sher Music, 1999) has just hit the stands as the first and only bi-lingual Afro-Caribbean piano method book/cd package. She has also published several articles for top music magazines, including Keyboard Magazine, Mix en Español, Modern Drummer and Bass Player.
