Julio "Julito" Collazo (1925 – March 5, 2004) was a master percussionist.
He moved to United States in the fifties to join in a world tour with the Afroamerican dancer Katherine Dunham and her Dance Company.
Julito Collazo is one of a handful of Cuban percussionists who came to the United States in the 1940s and 1950s.
These collaborations were magisterial and provide motivation and feedback for researchers, and assure the relevance of the research to the goal of improving the performance of batá drums.
Collazo died in New York City of undisclosed causes at age 78.
