A master improviser, Jose "El Canario" Alberto is one of Latin music's most influential vocalists. Since attracting international attention at the musical director of Tipica, '73 in October 1977, Alberto has gone on to record an exciting number of salsa albums with his New York based band Jose Alberto "El Canario" Y Su Orquestra.
A native of Santo Domingo, Alberto moved with his family to Puerto Rico at the age of 7. Inspired by Latin music, Alberto sharpened his vocal skills with the Antillas Millitary Academy. Moving to New York City in the early '70s, Alberto sang with a long list of orchestras. Working with Tipica '73, Alberto began working with such top ranked Latin musicians such as Johnny Rodriguez, Sonny Bravo, Mario Rivera, Leopoldo Pineda, Nicky Marrero, and Alfredo de la Fe.
