Before forming Alborada, Mr. Batista was a popular entertainer for 15 years, was the musical director of Khenany and performed with them at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and other noted halls throughout the Americas.
He is considered an outstanding composer and musician, talents that have been stimulated by his travels and experiences collecting original folk music from Latin America.
Alborada compose and perform music based on the folkloric traditions of countries including Bolivia, Paraguay, Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Peru.
Parts of his compositions have been used for a National Geographic Society production and his goal is to keep the music of the Andean culture alive by performing it with his family and passing it from generation to generation.
