Tony Succar BIO
Tony Succar was born in Lima, Peru May 18th 1986. He arrived to Miami, FL at the age of two. Tony, a jazz performance graduate from Florida International University, has a true passion for music. "I was privileged to have been born into a family of musicians, I couldn't be more grateful", he explained.
He has had the great honor to play several times with the great trumpet player Arturo Sandoval, from Cuba; with the Puerto Rican flutist and Grammy winner, NÃ©stor Torres. Tony has also played with great artists such as Tania Libertad, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Victor Manuelle, Oscar de Leon and has recorded with Peruvian guitarist Richie Zellon... He has also shared stages with the great Tito Nieves and Tito Rojas. Recently, Tony started to write after an inspiration. His first salsa song, "Manipula Dora", has been broadcasted on radio and took the first place spot in the show "Salsa y Punto". "I tell you people, you are going to hear a lot about Tony Succar... and you will hear from him with golden letters. This production has freaked me out and it is something to talk about", said the host of the radio, Ricardo SÃ¡nchez.
This young artist has been influenced by Ray Barreto, Fania All-Stars, Chucho Valdez, Juan Luis Guerra, Miami Sound Machine, Los Van Van, PerÃº Negro, and many others. Like them, Tony wants to make an impact in the world with his music. Growing up with so many diverse styles, his goal is to compose music that will attract dancers but also be enjoyable to the listener. He has always had the ability to entertain while keeping his roots and origins in his music.
He's currently the director of his band "Tony Succar y Mixtura" and dreams on performing around the world. His self-produced/recorded album, "El Color Del Tambor", has been making its way into many radio stations and homes. For the past two years, his project has been creating a great buzz, not only in South Florida, but in South America and Europe as well (appeared on the #1 Italian salsa website www.salsa.it). His performance schedule has been very busy since the beginning of his project... And has brought his music to be performed next to the greats (such as Tito Nieves, Tito Rojas...)
Tony is a talented young artist totally focused on the success of his music. This is just the beginning of his career... you will be seeing/hearing great things from him in the near future. In addition to his professional goals, Succar believes that "life is a privilege and you have to let God guide you towards the right path in order to reach your fullest potential." He added "you cannot be worrying about money and materialistic things because it draws your heart away from your true implication."
