Grammy Award-winning drummer Robby Ameen has compiled a recording career stretching from Dizzy Gillespie to Paul Simon, while maintaining a more than twenty year relationship with Latin icon Ruben Blades. Although of Lebanese origin, Robby is best known for his unique and powerful Afro-Cuban jazz style. He has recorded numerous albums with NEA Jazz Master Eddie Palmieri, as well as having toured or recorded with such luminaries as Jack Bruce, Mongo Santamaria, Paquito D’Rivera, Hilton Ruiz, Marc Anthony, Willie Colon, and Conrad Herwig’s “Latin Side Of” band, among many others. Robby’s own albums Days in the Life and Days in the Night feature predominantly his compositions and arrangements and he has also three records as the co-leader of the “El Negro and Robby Band” alongside Horacio “el Negro” Hernandez. Robby is the co-author with Lincoln Goines of the best-selling instructional book and CD: Funkifying the Clave: Afro Cuban Grooves for Bass and Drums, which has sold over 40,000 copies worldwide.
