Diaz Music Institute presents legendary salsa singer Ray De La Paz performing with Houston’s premier youth group “Caliente,” directed by Grammy Music Educator Finalist Jose Antonio Diaz.

De La Paz was born in the late 1940s in Harlem and grew up in the Bronx listening to rock, doo-wop, and Mexican influenced music. He took vocal lessons as a child, but it wasn't until 1970 when he stood in as a last minute replacement vocalist for El Conjunto de Don Juan that he first sang Latin music. That night the band opened the concert that also featured Joe Cuba with Cheo Feliciano and Jimmy Sabater, Ricardo Ray and Bobby Cruz, and Eddie Palmieri's La Perfecta with Ismeal Quintana.
