TIERRA, the band named “Best R&B Vocal Group” by four leading magazines including Billboard. They started their career in East Los Angeles with a blend of rock, pop, jazz, R&B and salsa. The result was a Latin R&B rhythm which produced classics like “Together”, “Gonna Find Her”, “Memories” and “Zoot Suit Boogie”.  Founded in 1972, the band has performed internationally and continues to perform with their unique smooth and soulful sounds.  Throughout Terra’s history, Rudy Salas has been, and continues to be the leader of the band, record producer, and head of business affairs for TIERRA.

TIERRA was the first Latino band to have four songs on the national chart and two simultaneously in the Top 100. They have performed in such prestigious shows such as Carnegie Hall, The American Music Awards, American Bandstand, and The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

TIERRA is widely known to have played a role in opening doors for other Latino and non-Latino superstars of today, including comedian Paul Rodriguez, Arsenio Hall, Sheila E., Gloria Estefan, Los Lobos, Latino Comic of the Year, Rudy Moreno, and more.

“Camino al Cielo, Havana NRG! (NRG Records). “NRG” stands for “New Rhythm Generation,” and this youthful Texas group offers up a hot program of timba-influenced salsa to prove that Havana-inspired tropical dance sounds are alive in the Lone Star state. Give much of the credit to Mariela Suárez the band’s music director, who plays both piano and violin. Her talents are complemented by a solid rhythm team, a three-member horn section and lead vocalist Maiquel Romero, who is also the group’s excellent trumpeter”. Mark Holston, HISPANIC MAGAZINE, March 2004

From performing solo on piano with her beautiful voice, or duo to trio she is ready. Son, Bolero, Trova, Cha Cha Cha, Cumbia and more Idania Live!

 Master Cuban Cigar Craftsman William Rodriguez
screen-shot-2017-01-02-at-6-40-49-pm

In 2010, Mr. Rodriguez came from Havana, Cuba, leaving behind his own cigar factory. Mr Rodriguez is from Marianao to be exact, one of the 15 municipalities in Havana. He is considered a “MASTER ROLLER” in the industry and in the top 20% of all Cuban cigar rollers. He has over 18 years of experience in the industry and has gone through rigorous training and apprenticeship programs in Cuba, including the famous Cohiba factory. He surpassed all requirements. Mr. Rodriguez is qualified to build every shape and size customary to the Cuban cigar industry, as well as, custom blends native only to his repertoire. One could say that Mr. Rodriguez has a “PhD” in cigar building. There are about 600 master rollers in Cuba. From this group of Master roller, about a third are specifically chosen to participate in an even more elite training program. He is part of that very elite group that can build cigars completely by hand. He now brings his expertise to us so we may enjoy a unique cigar experience.

Mr. Rodriguez creates over 75 authentic, original, custom made, organic cigars that do not carry insecticides found in most retail purchased cigars. Contact Rikki Rincon at 214-549-1201 or rikkirincon@creative.mobi for your events in USA.
