Biography

 
 
Master percussionist Luis Conte's career accompaniments include an astoundingly wide variety of performersófrom Eric Clapton and Phil Collins to Shakira and Madonna; from Ozzy Osbourne and Santana to Ray Charles and Tony Bennet.

Until he was fifteen years old, Luis Conte lived in his native Santiago, Cuba, and absorbed the rich musical history of the island nation. As said by Luis Conte himself, "Life in Cuba is all about enjoying life, and music is central to that lifestyle. Music is almost like food to Cuban people."

Soon, however, Luis Conte branched out and developed an affinity for rock & roll, R&B, soul, jazz, and The Beatles. Seeking more influence and experience, teenaged Luis left Cuba for Spain. After spending some time in Madrid, Luis Conte moved in with a cousin in Hollywood, California, where he attended Hollywood High School and played rock & roll guitar.

After Luis Conte met John Montealegre, he began to move away from modern American music and returned to his musical roots. Luis Conte studied Cuban drumming at Los Angeles City College. Luis gradually abandoned the guitar in favor of the drums. Diving in head first, Luis Conte played and studied at every opportunity.

Luis Conte's cultural heritage, devotion, musical flexibility, and sheer talent launched him into a career as a world-class percussionist. Not only has he performed with Latin, R&B, jazz, and rock musicians, but he also contributed to several movie soundtracks including Transformers, Miami Vice, Rain Man, Mission Impossible, Coming to America, The Italian Job, Ocean's 12, Sideways, and Waiting to Exhale. Luis also worked on the American television programs Dancing with the Stars and American Idol.
