@World Circuit : Hailing from the countryside near Santiago in the east of Cuba, his roots are in guajira (Cuban country music) and his trademark cowboy hat and penchant for wearing black have led some to dub him ‘Cuba’s Johnny Cash‘.

@allmusic : Cuban vocalist and guitarist Ochoa worked with many groups during his career, including the Septetos Cubanos, Casa de la Troya, and Cuarteto Patria, with which he recorded two albums, 1993’s A Una Coqueta and 1998’s Cubafrica.

@last.fm : In 1978, joined Patria Quartet as director and singer. In 1986, he shared a recording with the luminary Cuban singer Francisco Repilado, well known as Compay Segundo, ‘El Chan Chan’ and in 1989 they made different presentations in Washington, Guadalupe and Dominican Republic.
