Edwin Nepy Maldonado: Percussionist, Arranger, Producer and Vocalist.Edwin Nepy Maldonado was born and raised in Trenton, NJ, Nov. 15, 1976. He was the first child born to Eddie & Mille Maldonado. As a child, he always had an interest for music. Banging on pots and pans, whether the music was on or off, his father knew his son would become a musician. At the age of 8, Nepy, as everyone know him, made his debut playing the bongo with a band his father played rhythm guitar with, Estrellas Del Caribe. By the time he was about 11 or 12, he joined the family band led by his father Eddie and musically directed by his uncle Nelson Maldonado, Conjunto Familia, as a percussionist playing congas, timbales & bongo alongside his uncle Albert Maldonado
