Richard Bravo Closes the Latin Billboard Awards with Santana and Juanes

Pearl Percussion Artist, Richard Bravo, joined the legendary Carlos Santana and Latin Music superstar, Juanes, on stage at the 2015 Latin Billboard Music Awards, for a spectacular medley of the singles, “Black Magic Woman”, and “La Flaca”.  The performance, which can be viewed here courtesy of Telemundo, closed the evening’s events which celebrated those Latin music artists who have enjoyed the tremendous successes in both album sales and radio airplay throughout the past year.  During this performance with Carlos Santana and Juanes, Richard Bravo relied upon a beautiful set of Elite Oak Congas and Bongos finished in the stunning Diamond Burst lacquer. 

Along with the awards recognizing the current artists of the Latin Music industry, Billboard also presented three specialty awards during the ceremony including The Lifetime Achievement Award, Latin Music Hall of Fame Award, and The Spirit of Hope Award- the latter which was presented to Carlos Santana for his dedication to philanthropy. 

Following his appearance at the Latin Billboard Awards, Pearl Percussion Artist, Richard Bravo, will continue his remarkable juggling act of A-list gigs overseas, heading into the historic Abby Road Studios in London, England, to perform and record a live DVD with world renowned Brazilian singer-songwriter Roberto Carlos.  Roberto Carlos was also honored at the 2015 Latin Billboard Music Awards, presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his astounding contributions to the Latin Music industry.
