Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in 1957, salsa star Raulin Rosendo was steeped in the rhythms of Afro-Antilles music throughout his childhood. He began his performing career at the age of 12 as a member of the merengue group El Chivo y Su Banda, later appearing with acts including Fernandito Villalona, Conjunto Cl?sico and Los Vecinos.
Known as The Angry Sonero, Rosendo made his solo debut with 1991's Salsa, Solamente Salsa. By 1993, Raulin was recording the hits Amor en Secreto and Santo Domingo. The subsequent success of albums including ?Lo Maximo!, 1996's Dominicano Para El Mundo, 1997's ?Contr?late! and 1998's Llego la Ley established him among the biggest salsa performers of the period.
