Born in Chihuahua in 1924 to a family of musicians, Contreras is a Mexican jazz master drummer who for more than six decades has melded Latin influences with free jazz, psychedelia, avant-garde experimentation and global sounds from Egypt, India, Turkey, and elsewhere. Tino's career started in the 1950s and has seen him share stages with many of the greats – including Dave Brubeck, Cannonball Adderley and the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Now in his nineties, Contreras continues to play, record, and receive recognition for his contribution to Mexican jazz and beyond.
