Carolina Fuentes, aka “Mila Tina”, is a professional drummer/percussionist, as well as an audio-visual artist, and music producer.
The Mila Tina performance is played on an original standing arrangement of drums that she designed herself. This arrangement combines traditional drum pieces with Latin percussion instruments, such as her lead drums; the timbales.
Her drumming style combines elements of martial arts mixed with dance moves. Mila Tina also incorporates lighting effects and empowerment-themed video design.
Mila Tina delivers a slick, tight performance reminiscent of Sheila E. (the “Queen of Percussion”). She is playful, joyful and fun and her connection with the audience breaks the ice and lights up the event.
Mila Tina’s performance is truly a multi-sensory experience, with art you can hear, see and feel.
Her first EP is scheduled for release in 2018.
