“I tell you people, you are going to hear a lot about Tony Succar... and you will hear from him with golden letters. This production has freaked me out and it is something to talk about” - host of the radio show “Salsa y Punto”, Ricardo Sánchez
Tony Succar was born in Lima, Peru May 18th 1986. He arrived to Miami, FL at the age of two. Tony, a jazz performance major at Florida International University, has a true passion for music. “With such diversity in culture and music, being raised in Miami has been a huge gift for me” he explained
Tony has been performing professionally since the age of 13. He has had the great honor to play several times with the great trumpet player Arturo Sandoval, from Cuba; with the Puerto Rican flutist and Grammy winner, Néstor Torres. Tony has also played with great artists such as Tania Libertad, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Victor Manuelle and has recorded with Peruvian guitarist Richie Zellon… Recently, Tony started to write after an inspiration. His first salsa song, “Manipula Dora”, has been broadcasted on radio and took the first place spot in the show “Salsa y Punto”
This young artist has been influenced by Ray Barreto, Fania All-Stars, Chucho Valdez, Juan Luis Guerra, Marc Anthony, Miami Sound Machine, Los Van Van, Perú Negro, and many others. Like them, Tony wants to make an impact in the world with his music. Growing up with so many diverse styles, his goal is to compose music that will attract dancers but also be enjoyable to the listener. He has always had the ability to entertain while keeping his roots and origins in his music
He’s currently the director of his band “Tony Succar y el Grupo Mixtura” and dreams on performing around the world. In addition to his professional goals, Succar believes that "life is a privilege and you have to do the right things to live in harmony." He added that "you cannot be worrying about money and materialistic things because it draws your heart away from your true implication."
