Larry Harlow

Larry Harlow is one of the great masters of Salsa. His extensive musical education helped produce his music talents which include playing Jazz and Classical piano, conducting, composition, orchestration, and audio engineering. Larry Harlow also plays oboe, English horn, flute, bass, vibraphone and assorted percussion instruments.

During the mid 50ís, he was captured by the infectious spirit of Latin music. He went on to live in Cuba and studied authentic Afro-Cuban melodies and rhythms that are the origins of modern day Salsa. He returned to New York with his own unique style and became a founding member of the internationally famous "Fania All-Stars" group. His 15 years with the Fania All-Stars were extremely productive. He recorded over 25 solo albums, including his Grammy nominated album "La Raza Latina" and produced countless recordings for other musicians. He has received numerous awards from Billboard and Record World and has six gold records to his credit. Larry Harlow was an important force in attaining greater recognition of Latin artists by promoting the establishment of the first Grammy for Latin Music.

Larry Harlow is constantly cultivating  larger, more diverse audiences for Latin music. He created and composed the first Salsa opera, "Hommy", which he orchestrated and conducted at Carnegie Hall and repeated in San Juan, Puerto Rico to rave reviews.  He was the associate producer and co-starred in two breakthrough Salsa films of the 1970s, " Our Latin Thing" and "Salsa". Now he is producing a Latin music production for Ziggy Marley in Miami, Florida.

Larry Harlow continues to perform and tour internationally in Europe, Central and South America, Finland, Africa, and Japan as well as all major markets in the U.S.   In 1994 Larry  Harlow and Ray Barretto established the The Latin Legends Band who will be appearing at Kimballís Carnival July 13-15. The Latin Legends Band  brings together veteran musicians such as :-Yomo Toro; Cuatro virtuoso of Puerto Rico, Fania All -Stars member and funky Jibaro, Adalberto Santiago; known as the Pavorotti of Latin music and member of the original Fania All Stars and Eddie Guagua Rivera; bass Player, one of the original members of Orchestra Harlow .
