Gilberto Santa Rosa, nicknamed “El Caballero de la Salsa” (The Gentleman of Salsa) is a Puerto Rican bandleader of salsa and bolero.

Gilberto Santa Rosa’s musical elegance and style has made him one of the most prominent figures in Latin music. His countless accolades in the recording industry reaffirm his validity through the years. In 2002, Gilberto Santa Rosa was presented with the ASCAP Latin Heritage Award. In the same year, he was presented with a special award at the 2002 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards.
