He became a part of New York’s vibrant Latin music scene, performing with multi-instrumentalist Mario Rivera (as pianist, composer and arranger for Rivera’s legendary “Salsa Refugee” group), Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Ruben Blades [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rub%C3%A9n_Blades] , Bebel Gilberto, and David Byrne [http://davidbyrne.com/] (“Rei Momo ”) as keyboardist and vocalist. SANDBERG WAS THE COMPOSER FOR NICKELODEON’s landmark children’s programs “Dora the Explorer [http://www.nickjr.com/dora-the-explorer/] ” and “Go, Diego, Go!” It was when his work on “Dora” came to an end that he returned to playing classical music once again. The Steve Sandberg Quartet made its debut in 2016 at New York City’s DiMenna Center, merging classical Western music with his passion for jazz, Latin, and world music. The Quartet released its breakthrough recording, “Alaya,” on Artistshare Records in 2016.
