Miami Takes the Grammy for Best Tropical Latin Album of the Year

MIAMI, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Puerto Rican producer, composer, pianist and director of La Riquena orchestra, MARLOW ROSADO, received the Grammy award for Best Tropical Latin Album of the Year for his work "RETRO," during the 55th annual Grammy Awards of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, held in the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The award of an American Grammy in the Tropical category is a distinction achieved by very few Hispanic artists. That distinction grows when the winner is a teacher who has shared his musical knowledge with the children of Miami's primary schools; and the satisfaction is even greater considering that competition for the award included talents like Eddie Montalvo and the bachatero Romeo Santos.

Marlow grew up in Catano, Puerto Rico listening to Salsa Dura, Andy Montanez, Papo Luca y su Sonora Poncena, Ismael Miranda, Ismael Rivera and the others who led the way during the 70's. "RETRO" was produced as a sincere homage to the best and the greatest of the Golden Age of Salsa, integrating elements of modern music while not losing the essence of the original work.  He is accompanied in the work by a select group of musicians and singers, as well as some of the living legends of the genre.

"RETRO," now available through all on-line stores, features other guest artists such as Bobby Cruz, Tony Vega, Luigi Texidor, Marlon Fernandez, Kevin Ceballo, Tito Puente, Jr., bassist Salvador Cuevas and Quique Domenech with a stylish revival of "Adoracion", "Anacaona", "Fuego a la Jicotea", Marvin Santiago's classic, Senor Sereno, Naci Moreno y Jibaro soy; as well as other artists from different Caribbean countries including Venezuela, Colombia and Panama, who join in and harmonize with the impeccable sound of "La Riquena."

Marlow graduated in music education and obtained his master's degree in Jazz. He taught for nine years in the elementary schools of Miami as he pursued a career in the music industry. He has been nominated for a Grammy in the past for his participation in the Alejandra Guzman production of Lipstick; he has worked with such stars as Desmond Child, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, Yolandita Monge, and Noelia and acted as orchestra director for stars such as Tito Nieves and the legendary Celia Cruz.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
