Sobre mi Vida

about my life

William Anthony Colon Roman (born April 28, 1950) is a Nuyorican (a New York-born Puerto Rican) salsa musician and social activist. He began his career as a trombonist, and also sings, writes, produces, and acts. He is also involved in the politics of New York City. Willie Colon born in the South Bronx, New York, to American-born parents of Puerto Rican descent. He picked up the trumpet from a young age, and later switched to trombone, inspired by the all-trombone sound of Mon Rivera and Barry Rogers. He spent some summers at his maternal grandmother's sister's (La finca de Celin y Ramon) farm in the outskirts of Manati, Puerto Rico on the road to neighboring Ciales, Puerto Rico.
At the age of 15 he was signed to Fania Records and at 17 he recorded his first album, which ultimately sold more than 300,000 copies. Due to fortuitous events, the main record producer at Fania at the time, Johnny Pacheco, recommended Hector Lavoe to him.

He has also acted in films, including roles in Vigilante (1983), The Last Fight (1983) and It Could Happen to You (1994). Colon has been a civil rights, community and political activist since the age of 16. He has served as a member of the Latino Commission on AIDS and President of the Arthur Schomburg Coalition for a Better New York, member of the Board of Directors of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. In 1995, Mr. Colon became the first person of color to serve on the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) national board replacing Stephen Sondheim and was also a member of the ASCAP Foundation.

Beyond the trombone, he has also worked as a composer, arranger, and singer, and eventually as a producer and director. Combining elements of jazz, rock, and salsa, his work incorporates the rhythms of traditional music from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Brazil, and the other ancestral homeland, Africa, representing the mostly a one-way flow from Puerto Rico to the New York-based diaspora. "His life and music commute back and forth between his home turf in the Bronx and his ancestral Puerto Rico, with more than casual stop-offs in other musical zones of the Caribbean." Colón "makes the relation between diaspora and Caribbean homeland the central theme of his work," particularly in his 1971 Christmas album, Asalto Navideño. The lyrics and music of the songs on this album "enact the diaspora addressing the island culture in a complex, loving but at the same time mildly challenging way.

Músico estadounidense de ascendencia puertorriquena. Maestro del trombon y de la fusion de distintos ritmos caribenos, afroamericanos y de la musica urbana, formo junto al vocalista Hector Lavoe una de las parejas mas relevantes en la musica latina de los años setenta, y esta considerado uno de los pioneros en el desarrollo del autentico movimiento salsero a finales de los anos sesenta y principios de los setenta.

Nieto de emigrantes puertorriqueños, Willie Colón creció en el barrio latino del distrito del Bronx, un hecho que marcaría gran parte de su trayectoria personal y artística, con lo que ello implicaba de rebeldía y trasgresión de las normas establecidas. Tras estudiar trompeta y clarinete, su admiración por Mon Rivera le llevó a decantarse por el trombón a los catorce años, y dos años después, en 1966, grabó su primer disco con el significativo título de El Malo. Editado al año siguiente por la firma Fania, en este primer trabajo ya contó con la inconfundible voz de Héctor Lavoe e introdujo elementos del folklore musical puertorriqueño, en especial la bomba, mezclado con los ritmos hirientes y ásperos propios del trombón, de lo que fueron buenos ejemplos temas tan exitosos como Jazzy y I wish I had watermelon.

Junto a otros destacados músicos de origen caribeño como Ray Barretto, Bobby Valentín, Reynaldo Jorge o el propio Héctor Lavoe, Willie Colón participó en 1971 en la grabación del concierto de las Estrellas de Fania, considerado el evento que lanzó el movimiento de la salsa de Nueva York. Ese mismo año su magistral interpretación del tema Piraña, compuesto por Tite Curet Alonso, lo lanzó a la fama y lo convirtió en uno de los iconos de dicho movimiento musical. mas aquí...
