Meinl Cymbals is pleased to welcome drum set artist, percussionist and educator, Rigo Collazo to the team. Hailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Rigo has immersed himself in drum studies throughout his life, culminating with a tenure at the Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA, where he studied with such notables as Joe Porcaro, Ralph Humphrey, Dave Beyer, and Casey Scheuerell among others.
After his stint at MI, Rigo found his way back to PR, where he has worked in television as well as with different artists. Most notably, Rigo has been with the popular pop/rock/world music group Millo Torres y el Tercer Planeta since 2003, appearing on album and in concert with the band.
Along with his performing activities, Rigo runs a top-notch professional drum school in San Juan, called RigoDrum.
