Mikhail Salcedo has been exposed to various genres of music over the past two decades. He grew up listening to the music of The Manhattan Transfers, Frank Sinat...ra and Sergio Mendez by way of his father and steel drum bands with his uncle. While in secondary school he was called upon to go on a tour with FLABEJ, a steelpan ensemble, to attend an international music and dance festival in Branson, Missouri. From then on Mikhail’s desire to perform for diverse audiences began to grow.
Over the past 20 years Mikhail has performed on stages in France, U.S.A., British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and various islands in the Caribbean. He has performed at multi-national government conferences, jazz festivals (BVI Jazz and Tobago Jazz Festival), cruise ships and is well known on the Trinidad jazz circuit performing with well known local artists such as Theron Shaw, Clive Zanda, Elan Parle and Sean Thomas.
