Charles Flores

The career of the GRAMMY Award winner Bassist Charles Flores began in Cuba, with the Cuban jazz vocalist/composer Bobby Carcasses. While playing with Carcasses, he was recruited by pianist Emiliano Salvador, one of the key figures in the history of Cuban jazz. For the next three years, he performed throughout Europe and Latin America with Salvador and his quartet.

Charles continued his musical career with the Latin-fusion group “Afro-Cuba” during 1992 and 1993 recording a CD titled “Acontecer.”

After his stint with Afro-Cuba, he joined the Issac Delgado Group and toured internationally, while with Delgado he recorded three CD’s including “Con Ganas,” “EL Chevere de la Salsa y EL Caballero del Son,” and “EL Año que Viene.”
