About

Born in San Juan (Puerto Rico), Ernesto “Bebo” Rodriguez is a singer/songwriter, composer, drummer, percussionist, arranger and producer who has spent the last few years making a name for himself in the Puerto Rico and USA independent music scene. In 2008, after graduating high school where he played in several school ensembles, he (and friends) formed the reggae band Guanajibo where he played drums and lead vocals, and composed/arranged most of the group’s music. With this band, Rodriguez toured his home island playing at some of the countries biggest stages and opening concerts for legends like Damian Marley, Black Uhuru, Israel Vibration and others. As time went by, Bebo (as most people know him) became a vital part of other hip-hop bands like Tráfico Pesado, Da’ Bone Ensemble and others contributing his percussive, vocal, and arranging skills, while studying a B.A in Social Studies at the University of Puerto Rico. In 2011, after collaborating with artists like Cultura Profética, Gomba Jahbari, Velcro, Intifada, Henry Cole & The Afro-beat Collective and many others, Bebo left his country to pursue a higher musical education in the world famous Berklee College of Music, where he recently graduated with a degree in Contemporary Writing and Production. During this time, he played and collaborated with artists like Lowtone Society, Alejandro Sanz, Matt Jenson’s “Los Three”, Jeremy de Jesus, The Mario Castro Quintet, and others. A year ago he began recording his first solo project dubbed eL Guiso (the stew), a mix of savory ingredients that make up a very tasty treat and features amazing musicians from all across the world gathered in Boston and Puerto Rico. Rodriguez currently resides back home in PR where he is finishing the debut album, playing and singing drums regularly, and captivating audiences old and young. Be on the lookout for his upcoming projects: a dancehall EP in collaboration with Puerto Rican producer Frankie Leroux, and his debut solo album eL Guiso.
