Puerto Rican percussionist who was a fixture of the New York salsa scene, and on hundreds of albums passed away on September 19, 2014. He was also a sacred drummer, akpwon (lead vocalist) and babalao (high priest) in Ifá (Santeria), responsible for being among the first to introduce traditional batá rhythms to secular audiences.
