With academic training at the Guillermo Tomás Music Schools and the Amadeo Roldán Conservatory, at the age of 17, he joined the orchestra “Abel y la Seducción” and a year later created, “Suprema Ley”, thus starting his outstanding career professional.
At this stage, he arouses the interest of the Spanish record label Envidia Record with which he signed his first international contract. With this record company, he managed to produce more than ten phonograms for his group and various other artists, including Tirso Duarte. He also participated in the recording of 40 albums as a percussionist in various productions and created music for various “Latin Jazz” groups, such as “Havana Express”.
Maykel decides on October 10th, 2004 to make his big debut with his new orchestra “Maykel Blanco y Su Salsa Mayor”, made up of talented musicians, who graduated from various art schools in the nation.
Since then and up to the present, he has devoted his energy, creation, and musical talent to this interesting project. Thus, allowing his professional career to continue on the rise, as a pianist, percussionist, composer, music producer, arranger, and cultural promoter reaching a high level of popularity and prestige, in Cuba and the world”.
