Editor’s note please find part 1 here: Latino Entrepreneur, Musician Willy Rodriguez Shares His Back Story- Part 1 [Video]

Twenty-one years ago after graduating high school Willy began performing at clubs throughout New York City. During one of his performances Tito Puente Jr‘s cousin happened to be in the audience, was impressed and introduced himself. He told Willy, Tito was looking for a musical director and Tito would be calling him on Sunday. To Wily’s surprise Tito did call and their first concert was set. Willy knew he didn’t have the experience but gave it his best shot. It didn’t work out well but Tito recognized Willy’s talent and capabilities so he taught Willy the ropes.

Willy and Tito’s collaboration flourished and they toured Europe. They were well received in countries which were not known as hot beds of Salsa like Belgium. The trip inspired Willy to start thinking about the International Salsa Museum.

Enjoy Willy’s journey and much more in part 2:
