was born and raised in New York’s El Barrio, was a Latin musical pioneer during the prolific Age of The Latin Boogaloo in the 1960s. His artistic influence infused a renewed creative expression into Latin American culture and music and continues today. His work with the T&T Band and Joe Batan led to his transiting to Florida in the early 70s. He founded “LA NUEVA ERA,” a community center that gave birth to the radio program “LA SALA MUSICAL,” on Tampa’s 88.5 WMNF radio.
Ramos continues to expand his eclectic spirit today—as he reinvents himself in his beloved New York City “Dándole Camino” Al Arte Pictórico.
His trademarked artistic presence continues to solidify the cultural cohesion that extends beyond the racial and economic disparities in this Epic of Times.
A self-taught amateur photographer since 2018, is dedicated to macro and close-up photography. Growing up in Germany surrounded by the Black Forest mountains, nature was always an essential part of her life—Hiking, biking, and barefoot walks through the nearby meadows with her best buddy Greif a German Shepard, by her side. Soaking in the peacefulness, the scented air, letting the breeze blow away all worries while being caressed and comforted by the sunshine, with a smile on her face with soul dipped in bliss. Photography not only became her passion but a tool for a journey of self-discovery and coping with depression.
Realidades was the first national Latino television series in public television history in the United States of America.
The groundbreaking television series highlighted various events, activities, organizations, and individuals, significantly illustrating and defining our ”Realities” during the 1960s and 70s
