Latin Biz Today Partner & VP chats with Willy Rodriguez about growing up in a bad neighborhood and the impact of music in his life.

At a very young age Willy Rodriguez’s father gave him a mini Casio piano as a gift. To his father amazement almost immediately Willy began hammering out a song. His father noting the natural talent asked Willy he would like to take piano lessons. While unsure what that entailed he said yes and from that point on music became a big part of his life. Growing in a bad section in Washington Heights (Manhattan) NY it kept him out of trouble.

In this first part of the interview you hear Willy’s back story which set the stage for a burgeoning journey as an Hispanic business owner and Salsa Latin Jazz musician.
