Cris Matos

Studio 302

Singer/Songwriter, photographer, painter and mixed media artist. Cris is an accomplished salsa sonero songwriter for 35+ years and an award-winning lead vocalist and songwriter for Manicato, his son Israel’s Puerto Rican Latin funk, rock and reggae band. He plays harmonica and sings Latin Blues with his other son, Javier. His lyrics travel between making strong statements about injustices he finds in the international press to inspirational words of world unity to songs of deep love for his colonized home country of Puerto Rico

Both a women’s and children’s’ advocate, having a daughter and multiple granddaughters of his own, his lyrics reflect his wishes and warnings for all girl’s and women’s futures.

Cris is also a professional and a fine art photographer. He is known for the fine art perspective he brings to an assignment that documents performances and visual art exhibitions.

He has worked as an installation preparator and documentation specialist for Asian American Women Artists Association for over 10 years, Cynthia Tom – visual artist, A PLACE OF HER, Reiko Fujii – visual artist, Susan Almazol – performance artist, The Blue Shadows-Blues, Israel and the Outsiders, and Manicato.
