AUSTRALIA-Gilberto Moreaux

Zapata Negro

Gilberto Moreaux (gilbertonn) was born in Havana, Cuba in 1967. He began playing drums at the early age of 8 years old, following in the footsteps of his father, Leon Gilberto Moreaux (Manteca), a prominent cuban musician who besides being a singer also played guitar and the "tres"(a small guitar with 3 pairs of strings). He was responsible for sparking young Gilbertos’ life long passion for music. 

When Gilberto Moreaux was 12 years old he began his studies at the world famous Manuel Saumell Elementary School, and then studied at the equally prestigious Amadeo Roldan music school. 

Gilberto, or "Gilbertónn," for which he is more commonly known, has performed as a drummer and timbales player with nearly every major group in Cuba in virtually every musical genre: from straight ahead jazz to traditional Cuban styles; from funk to rock, to Latin fusion. He is best known internationally for the "funk-in-clave" style of Afro-Cuban 'Salsa' known as Timba. 

Gilberto was also a contributor to the drum instruction book “Tito Puente’s Drumming with the Mambo King” by Taye drums endorser, Jim Payne, (quoted in Chapter 1 and assisted in developing Chapter 3, Mambo Bell pattern). 

He has toured all across the world, spanning over 5 continents being a prominent member of many of Cuba's most popular groups, including Atempo, Medico de la Salsa, Bamboleo, The Power Generation, Charanga Forever, and the Universal recording artist , Latin Grammy nominated band, Charanga Habanera. 

He has previously performed with the great Cuban band D'Talle, as well as numerous other bands such as Sheldon Reynolds, Herbie Hancock,Sara Mclachlan,Teddy Lee Grimes, Jillian Lebeck, Tony Foster,Adam Thomas, Paul Plimley,Mike Allen, Eli Bennet,Tommy Babin, John Stiver,La Candela, Richard Aloysius,Soul Sistahs, Edgar Muenala,Melody Diachun,Doug Stephenson,Cory Weeds,Alex Cuba, Alpha Yaya Diallo, HB Concept2005- 007 HB Wild, The Tina Turner Journey, The Cameron Hood Trio and the 2007 Western Canadian Music Award Nominee for outstanding jazz recording of the year, Zapato Negro.
