Estela Nena

LTC Event Promoter

Estela (aka. “The Mambo Queen,” aka “MBQ”) was born in Barranquilla, Colombia and grew up in Union City, NJ.

I have a long background in music promotion and the recording industry, beginning from my earliest days with my father who was a music conductor from Cuba and whom I recently found out was also a Golden Glove Boxing Trainer in his mother country of Cuba.

My years with RMM Records, I was working with Ralph Mercado whom saw me doing projects with artists such as Mark Anthony, Tito Nieves, Jose Alberto El Canario and Celia Cruz as well as working in the booking division alongside Juan Toro and DJ Johnny Falcones ( aka “Baby Drac”).

I still keep my fingers on the pulse of current dance music trends which are very active in the U.S., club promotions and the special events scene. I pride myself on audience outreach and promoting mycurrent projects by utilizing news and social media to the fullest extent in today’s new media landscape.

I joined forces with Felipe Rose in the summer of 2012 on One Voice South Africa Radio which later became One Voice Radio. (Graphic Designer and Social Networking Producer) .

I have taken this venture a step further, since I have that passion for cooking as well, I decided that I would write my own Cookbook also making homemade comfort foods which I learned from myparents, but with a healthier twist. In the long run comfort food is the best, but why not modify it and make it healthier?

Recently I was flown to Las Vegas as Pitbull’s special guest for one ofhis concerts. It was a very pleasant experience to find myself once again surrounded of VIP, (very important people).

It is for me an honor to share with all my friends and the public in general, the culture I grew up in. I only hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
