About the speaker:

Tito Deler - Blues musician, graphic designer
Tito Deler is a soulful musician with a story to tell.

Why you should listen

Born and raised in uptown Manhattan, Tito Deler is the son of immigrants from the Dominican Republic. With a natural gift for music, Deler started playing piano at an early age and picked up the guitar by age eight. But it wasn’t until he was 38 that Tito found his true instrument: a steel body resonator guitar. He started writing music of his own, combining sounds from his New York upbringing with the style of pre-war Mississippi Delta blues. He releases his first record, The Original Harlem Slim, which was named one of the top 15 albums by Other Music in 2012.

Deler leads the men's, women's and children's graphic design teams for Tommy Hilfiger in New York City.
