Short Bio.

Born amidst the vibrant rhythms of Bogotá, Cali, and Barranquilla, Colombia, Manolo Puerto embraced the world of music from an early age. His passion led him to the United States, where he furthered his skills with degrees in sound engineering and business administration. Starting as an ambitious musician, Manolo soon realized the gap in the market for a Latin orchestra, giving birth to his first band, EL EQUIPO.

This was just the beginning. Manolo’s relentless drive to innovate and cater to niche audiences saw him establishing EL KARTELL, a Latin Pop Music Band, and setting a significant footprint in the Jewish community. Understanding and respecting their musical tastes, Manolo even brought in seasoned musicians from Israel, ensuring authenticity in every performance. This commitment opened doors for him, not just in the U.S., but in global destinations like Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, and Israel.

The turn of the millennium saw Manolo adeptly navigating the evolving music landscape, introducing contemporary genres into his band’s repertoire. 2003 marked another milestone: Discos Fuentes recognized his unparalleled expertise and brought him onboard as the manager of the renowned group, Sonora Carruseles.

Today, Manolo Puerto stands as a symbol of musical diversity, innovation, and international acclaim. With over 40 years in the music industry, his latest venture, Groove Republik Band, continues to blend cultures and melodies, solidifying his legacy as a true maestro of the music world.
