About David Rosado Cuba
David was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico where he began playing in 1973, influenced by his father, the famous Puerto Rican musician Fernando "Nando" Rosado.
In 1977 David Rosado met his idol Tito Puente who became a good friend and a mentor. The same year he also met the great percussionists Juan Antonio "Papo" Pepin, and Willie Rosario. These two were also very influential in the development of David as a percussionist and it was thanks to Pepin that David was able to record for the first time with the late, great percussionist Rafael Cortijo.
David has played with some of the most important salsa orchestras in Puerto Rico like Tommy Olivencia and his orchestra, Mario Ortiz and his orchestra, and the famous Batacumbele. In this band he played with Angel "Cachete" Maldonado and recorded two albums with them.
David has also played with international artists and bands like Antonio Caban Vale (El Topo), David Valentin, DLG, Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz, Tito Allen, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Grupo Yuba Ire, Son del Barrio, and Gilberto Santa Rosa's orchestra, among others.
