José was born in Maryland, and lived there during the first eight years of his life prior to moving to Tampa. Frequent trips with his family to Puerto Rico infused fervor in his soul for his Hispanic heritage and excitement for Latin rhythms. Diligently practicing for hours a day, José honed his skills. He performs as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist in his concerts bringing art music from around the world to his audiences. José’s primary instrument is the flute. In his performances, he captures the audience’s attention because he brings music from all parts of the world and fuses it all together.
