Nino Segarra obtained his bachelor's degree in Applied Music (voice, arrangements and composition) and another degree in music education from the Interamerican University of San Germán.


When he was 14, he started playing guitar and percussion instruments, but when he was 16 he entered professionalism with the group "The Monarc" as a guitar player. A year later he began his activities as a singer interpreting the genre of the ballad.


His first musical arrangements were recorded with the Mundo de Ponce orchestra, directed by maestro Jossie León. He then made a variety of arrangements in Puerto Rico for plays and symphonic compositions. In 1988, he decided to made arrangements for artists such as Andy Montañez, Marvin Santiago, Eddie Santiago, Oscar de León, Lalo Rodriguez, Amilcar Boscan, Carmita Jiménez and Orquesta La Selección, among others.


In the specialty of Salsa, he has recorded seven productions. The production "With music inside" was the beginning of the ascending career of Nino Segarra, making him one of the most acclaimed dance music singers. The theme "Because I love you" of that production, managed to maintain the first places of sales in the United States, Puerto Rico and Latin America. Later Nino promoted the production "Romantic Salsero" with salsa rhythms, boleros and songs by renowned composers, such as Victor Daniel, Guadalupe García, Luis Seda and Nino's own inspiration. He also included a song with Alex León and Megui Rivera, in honor of the late Frankie Ruiz.
