Gritty, witty and streetwise, the Havana-born Gerardo Contino, «El Abogado de la Salsa,» is a Cuban singer and songwriter. This former lead singer of the Cuban mega-group NG La Banda is a party onstage: he loves to improvise and to pull the audience into call & response.

Gerardo created Los Habaneros in 2012, and released their first album, Somos Latinos, in 2013.

In 2015, Gerardo also joined the Max Weinberg Orchestra as the lead-Latin singer, and the Larry Harlow's Latin Legend's Band. With the Latin Legend's, Gerardo has toured in Japan and Colombia (upcoming).

Through his musical projects, Gerardo has toured in Italy, France, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Venezuela, Mexico, Peru, and Canada. He has played in international festivals of salsa and jazz such as: Toulouse Festival, France; Latin American Festival of Milan, Italy; Festival Fiesta, Rome, Italy; Festival of Múnich, Switzerland, Copenhagen Festival, Denmark; Salsa Festival of Verona, Italy; and, Afro-American Roots of Maracay, Venezuela.

Gerardo has also shared the stage with such artists as Max Weinberg, Oscar de Leon, Larry Harlow, Roberto Roena, El Gran Combo, La India, Los Van Van, Xiomara Laugart, Carlos Varela, Alexander Abreu, Frank Fernandez, Osdalgia, Giovanni Hidalgo, Kelvis Ochoa, David Torrens, and Jose Armando Gola.

Gerardo is a recipient of the 2015 and 2014 Lower Manhattan Cultural Council grant for Manhattan Community Arts Fund. Gerardo is endorsed by Gorilla Ears, is an active member of Musicians on Call, and was an invited speaker and performer for TEDMED 2014 in the Kennedy Center for the Arts, Washington, DC.

Gerardo received his education in Law at the University of Havana and his Master's in Law (LLM) at Cardozo School of Law, with a concentration in Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law.
