Born in Los Angeles, raised in New York and eventually naturalised in Johannesburg, Martin Rafael Otto, aka Cito, was brought up by his Puerto Rican mother and American father, both musicians and embracers of the Hispanic culture.

Cito has teamed up with Martin Schofield, fellow WONDERboom guitarist, playing lead guitar and South African percussionist, Riaan Van Rensburg to form this unique band who have just released their debut album, “Recuerdos Del Alma”.

"The manifestation of a life-long calling and dream, to record and produce a record that pays tribute to my musical heritage and Puertorican roots, is something that will make me so happy for a long time,” said Cito.

The rhythms and harmonies of bolero, rumba, salsa, mambo and folklorica are embraced, highlighting traditional favourites from countries including Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Argentina and others.

The album, which was recorded live captures the band’s interpretation of the songs perfectly as engineer and co-produced Barry Berk reveals: “The recording process was old school, live band in a studio laying down song after song.
