Julio Barreto


Julio Barreto was born in Guanabacoa / La Habana / Cuba in 1967. Thanks to his older brothers and his talented uncles (Justo Barreto Rodrigues played the piano for Louis Armstrong, Alberto Barreto composed for Benny More) he started playing percussions at age seven. Soon he played many concerts, private partys as well as public events.

He started studying classical music in 1983, six years later he graduated from the "Amadeo Roldan" academy.

Since then Julio Barreto successfully played in various bands, among others with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Omar Hernandez, Ron Carter, Charlie Haden, Miroslav Vitous, John Patitucci, Buster Williams, David Sanchez, Chucho Valdez and Steve Coleman. In 1997 he formed his own Quartet, their latest recording "IYABÓ" with special guest Ravi Coltrane was just released.
"That is great music with a great future, it's the perfect mixture of Afro-Cuban music, Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul and bebop." - Ravi Coltrane
