Gilberto Santa Rosa is El Caballero de la Salsa

Santa Rosa came up in the New York Salsa boom of the 1970s, went solo in the 1980s, and is still going strong. Santa Rosa’s style varies from dance-oriented to romantic. Lately he sounds jazzy.

Santa Rosa is a big fan of Latin legend Tito Rodríguez who was also famous for his boleros (soft romantic lullabies) back in the Palladium Ballroom days of the 1950s. Santa Rosa collects Rodríguez memorabilia and has recorded an album of Rodríguez songs.

In 1995, Santa Rosa became the first Puerto Rican salsa singer to perform at Carnegie Hall. The live recording En Vivo Desde El Carnegie Hall (Live from Carnegie Hall) reached number 2 on the Billboard Tropical/Salsa chart and made Perdóname (Forgive me) his signature song.
