Biography

Ruy López-Nussa Lekszycki is considered one of the most acclaimed and relevant Cuban musicians and percussionists who also act as a music teacher and essayist.

He was born in Mexico City in 1957 and, the following year, moves with his family to Havana, Cuba. According to Ruy, his parents, friends and teachers were essential not only at the beginning of his career but also in his subsequent training as a musician. It is not trivial, then, that in 1976 he finished the average level of music in the specialty of percussion and in 1982 he concluded his studies at the Instituto Superior de Arte.

In that same year he began his work as a teacher at the Provincial Art School of Pinar del Río and, on his return to the capital, he first joined the faculty of the Alejandro García Caturla Conservatory and later the Amadeo Roldán Conservatory.
