Roberto Roena is a Puerto Rican salsa music percussionist and orchestra leader, who was one of the original members of El Gran Combo. He later became the leader of his own band, Roberto Roena y Su Apollo Sound, one of the best Latin salsa bands in his native country, Puerto Rico.

In 1969, the band recorded hits such as: “Y Tu Loco Loco y Yo Tranquilo”, “El Escapulario” “Traición”, “Qué Se Sepa”, “El Sordo” and “Herencia Rumbero”. The increase in their popularity led them to make big tours around U.S and Latin America.
