His entry into the music world as a featured vocalist/songwriter/arranger followed only a few years later, when he became one of the founding members of the legendary Flamenco Rock band CARMEN.  Having shared the stage with such luminaries as David Bowie, Jethro Tull and Electric Light Orchestra, CARMEN was the first groundbreaking band to fuse Flamenco with Orchestral Rock, both audibly and visually.
THE FREEDOM reflects Roberto Amaral's use of his multi-faceted talents to create a sophisticated sound that incorporates intriguing musical styles, elements and textures from different countries and cultures. He refers to his music concept as "Exotic Contemporary".

This vision, which Roberto has had for many years, is to have the world recognize a universal music genre that knows no boundaries and celebrates non-conformity.  Most importantly, Roberto's passion is simply to continue making music such as this  --- an artistic expression of love, loss, joy, pain, empowerment and the ever present need to convey one's own personal sense of identity and freedom.

THE FREEDOM is the brainchild of singer/songwriter, arranger/producer Roberto Amaral.  This dynamic collection of 15 songs is a one-of-a-kind blend of Pop and Flamenco, accented by Latin, Middle Eastern, Jazz, Rock and R&B.
Roberto was born of Mexican and Brazilian parents and grew up in the Latino barrio of East Los Angeles, where he was exposed to many different types of soulful music.  His ​early varied musical influences are clearly evident in his now trademark style of singing, writing and layered production.  At the young age of seventeen, Roberto's professional career took off when he began to establish himself as a Flamenco dancer and choreographer who would quickly achieve international recognition and acclaim.
