Curated by its founder Roberto Carlos, a young Los Angeles-based artist/promotor who has committed his musical journey to bolero music and its traditions, this new music series will feature the last of the great romantic trios Los Tres Reyes, along with GRAMMY®-winner Rosalie Rodriguez. Evoking the bohemian spirit of LA, this magical summer evening under the stars will be filled with nostalgia and love.
Latin American bolero music is recognized for its romantic lyrics and lush harmonies, and is considered by many to be the most romantic music genre of Latin America. The genre originated in Cuba in 1883 but gained international notoriety once the music reached Mexico in the 1940s, and was interpreted by romantic trios: three-piece bands composed of three voices accompanied by a guitar and the complex instrumentation of a requinto, a smaller guitar typically tuned a fifth higher than a standard guitar.
Los Tres Reyes was founded in 1957 by the classically trained guitarists and twin brothers Gilberto and
Raul Puente. They were noted not only for their guitar virtuosity, but also for their contributions to the development of the romantic music genre in Mexico during the 1950s and 1960s. They are
considered icons of Mexico’s popular music. The group has toured extensively in the United States, Europe,
and Latin America. The group is made up of brothers Gilberto and Raul Puente from Nuevo Laredo Tamaulipas, México and the Matanzas, Cuban-born singer/guitarist Bebo Cardenas.
GRAMMY® award-winning recording artist Rosalie Rodriguez was born and raised in the heart of central California, the San Joaquin Valley. She is a third generation mariachi musician and made her way to Los Angeles after high school to pursue a career in the performing arts. Rosalie landed a recording contract with Sony Music Latin after attending Berklee College of Music. Rosalie’s career highlights include performing at the Houston Astrodome and Teatro Degollado in Guadalajara, Mexico.
Rosalie has made appearances on shows such as Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen, My Fair Wedding with David Tutera and Jaime Oliver’s Food Revolution, as well as in films and national commercials with celebrities such as Mexican comedian Adal Ramones and American Idol judge Randy Jackson. Rosalie has also shared the stage with performers such as Linda Ronstandt, Pedro Fernandez, Marco Antonio Solis, Vicki Carr, and Cristian Castro to name a few.
