Joan Soriano

Joan Soriano

SATURDAY, FEB. 24 | 7:30 PM
Manicur Assembly Hall, Lane University Center

Born in the countryside near Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, Joan Soriano fashioned his first guitar from fishing line and a discarded metal box. Today, he is known as “El Duque de la Bachata” – the Duke of Bachata. The Miami New Times proclaimed that he “seems to embody the very history of his music.”
Bachata is essential to the Dominican culture, drawing on a variety of musical influences from Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean. As the undisputed master of the genre, Soriano infuses his music with down-to-earth spirit, punchy guitar-based rhythms and gutsy, street-born attitude.
