Roger Squitero


Tribal Sage is a World music project written and produced by Roger Squitero and fellow percussionist Javier Diaz. Roger and Javier met playing percussion together for Phil Collins "Tarzan" on Broadway. They soon realized they had amazing chemistry and after the run of the show decided to write and record together. The CD features a very unique blend of world percussion as well as the vocals of Javier Diaz. They enlisted the talents of Bill Evans (Miles Davis), Mark Egan (Pat Metheney), Jeff Golub (Rod Stuart), Steve Gaboury (Cindi Lauper), Toyin Spellman (Wayne Shorter), Lincoln Goines (Sonny Rollins ) and background vocal work from Saundra Santiago, Daphne Rubin Vega and Amanda Homey.

"Tribal Sage's first album Behind the Mask is a daring combination of sounds and traditions: Electronica meets Afro-Cuban Rumba, tribal spirituality and New Age. New York based percussionists/composers Roger Squitero and Javier Diaz have crafted a collection of beautiful songs with intoxicating rhythms inside a fantastic sonic world. The album features Javier Diaz on vocals and percussion, Roger Squitero on percussion and super talented guest artists such as Bill Evans on Sax, Toyin Spellman on English Horn, Lincoln Goines and Mark Egan on Bass and many more. Packed with top-notch guest artists, creative electronics and first-rate world percussion, this album is sure to be one of your favorites. Afro-Cuban, Jazz, New Age and World Beat genres blend together seamlessly aided by exotic vocals." - Bachovich Music Publications
