Liber was born in Havana, Cuba in 1977. Coming from a musical family (his mother is a professional classical clarinet player and his grandmother was one of the most famous singer of Haitian folklore in Cuba), he was already performing at a very early age. He studied classical percussion at the Conservatorio Amadeo Roldan, Havana, where he graduated in 1997. During his classical schooling he also studied Afro-Cuban folklore and popular Cuban music. Liber became the drummer of the Cuban nr. 1 salsa orquestra NG-La Banda at the early age of 18.
Shortly after his graduation he moved to The Netherlands where he continued his classical studies and also started taking lessons at the jazz department of the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.
In Holland he has become the most asked for latin-drummer/timbalero. His interest in many other music styles like jazz and pop but also hiphop and heavy metal have turned him into a very widely evolved musician and one of the most talented drummers in Europe.
Liber can be heard on numerous CD productions in all kind of musical genres. He plays and played with: NG-La Banda, Banda PG, Ramón Valle Trio, Randal Corsen quartet, Fernando Lameirinhas, Rumbatá, La Banda Iré, Bomba Moderna, Laura Fygii, Izaline Calister, Denise Jannah, Leonardo Amuedo, Lotz of Music, Gerardo Rosales, Edy Martinez, and many others.
