I was formally introduced to bomba and plena in 2005 by Luis Perez a former member of Segunda Quimbamba .  Although I had heard plena growing up as most Puerto Ricans do during the Christmas holidays I had never been exposed to bomba.  I began playing  cua with Segunda Qimbamba of Jersey City. I then began playing studying bomba with Hal Barton and Los Bomberos de Brooklyn. Shortly therafter I became a student of Alberto “Tito” Cepeda from whom I learned the fundamentals of playing bomba and plena. I continued studying with him and Juan Cartagena of Segunda Quimbamba.
