Through Erika Muñoz official administrator of the portal “Se Armó la Rumba en México”, www.SalsaGoogle.com International Salsa Magazine and Por La Maceta Internacional 101.1 FM present the Puerto Rican Chevy “El Pitirre De La Salsa” based in Columbus, Georgia, USA.
The singer-songwriter Jose David Flores Perez better known as Chevy El Pitirre De La Salsa, son of Puerto Rican parents (both Cidreños), so at the age of 8 years settles in Cidra, a municipality in the mountainous Central Region of the Island of Enchantment.
He had the privilege of being lulled with musical notes; his father was an amateur singer as well as his maternal grandfather and uncles, and the string instruments (guitars, Cuban tres, and Puerto Rican cuatro) were his letters of introduction and distinction.
Once he settled in Puerto Rico, and as a teenager, he participated in choral activities at his school and in troubadour competitions in his town and surrounding areas.
In 1999 he arrived in Columbus, Georgia in fulfillment of his military service and remained there until 2005. During this period of time he joined musical groups in the area of Son Tropical (Columbus), Orquesta Tamboricua and Taboga, both from Atlanta.
Back to Puerto Rico in 2006, he stayed away from the stage, except for his participation in the second edition of the contest “Buscando el Sonero de Picante” for the year 2012 held at the Marriott Hotel in Isla Verde, where Chevy managed to sneak into the finalists.
Those evenings were hosted by radio man and event promoter Nestor “El Búho Loco” of Z93, Puerto Rico’s Salsa radio station, and accompanied by the musical framework of La Sonora Sanjuanera.
He returns to Columbus in 2016 and the meeting with the musician and arranger Felix Rodriguez takes place, integrating the vocal line of the Caribbean Sound group “group that by then was in the process of formation” and that somehow would be the necessary incentive for his return to the musical stage.
In the month of February 2019 prior to the celebration of Valentine’s Day, the single titled Instrumento de Amor was released through the different social networks and could be obtained through the various platforms in music sales in digital format.
The date was selected intentionally because from the titles of the singles, the name of the production and the theme of this one, it is evident the concordance of the encounters and misunderstandings of love that happen in everyday life.
The first production “Entre el Amor y el Vacilón” contains 8 songs inspired by Chevy’s own pen that he has drawn from the depths of his heart.
Under an intense work in this 2021 El Pitirre De La Salsa presents his second production for the album titled “Enjaulado” contains 12 songs of which some are authored by Chevy.
On May 30 was the official launch of the second production of the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter and is available on all digital platforms.
You can already listen to the promotional track titled “En Modo de Avión” and “Siempre en mi Mente” to mention a few that are already available on his YouTube channel.
