from Juan Ceruto's "A puerto padre"

With the departure of Alain Pérez and Joel Domínguez to Spain, Roberto Riverón has become the leading studio bassist in Cuba. In 2001, he played on two grammy-nominated albums: "La fórmula" and "La rumba soy yo" and also on two which should have been nominated: "Oye como va" (Klimax) and "A puerto padre" (Juan Ceruto).

Riverón was a founding member of Kliamx, played on all three albums, and contributed several arrangements, including the breathtaking "Regalo de Amor", which he co-composed with Giraldo Piloto. He's currently touring and recording with Cubanismo. His brother, Roicel Riverón, is the incredible drummer of Manolito y su Trabuco. The two brothers finally recorded together on the "Knock-Out" DVD Manolito y su Trabuco vs Bamboleo. Sadly the reason for the collaboration was the passing of long-time Trabuco bassist Eduardo Mora.

Roberto is currently living in Toronto, Ontario where he is as busy as ever in the strongly emerging Canadian Cuban music scene.
