A drum, percussion, and professional music veteran of over thirty years, Christina Torres has been playing drums since she could tie her shoes. As a nearly life-long member of her family’s three-generation musical dynasty The Mike Torres Band, she has lived and breathed professional music her entire life. Skilled in drums, congas, and timbales, as well as keyboards and lead vocals, her talents are as numerous as they are impressive. On stages large and small, Torres lives the life, has the skills, and knows what is takes to move the crowd. At the end of the day she gives Hiptrix Drumsticks her highest recommendation.
Christina has recorded, toured nationally, been on international television, and shared the stage with many major acts, including Pete Escovedo, War, Los Lobos, The Latin Breed, Malo, El Chicano, Teena Marie, Tierra, El DeBarge, Ram Herrera, La Sombra, David Lee Garza, and many more. She’s also seen action alongside members of Santana and Smashmouth, and her unquestionable skills and dedication have earned her the endorsement of companies like Vic Firth, Toca Percussion, Paiste Cymbals, and Hansenfutz Pedals. Christina now has added Hiptrix to her list of official endorsements, and we’re very happy she has.
