Joan Soriano and Family

A practitioner of palo and gaga, Joan blends Afro-Dominican sacred traditions with bachata, imparting his music with down to earth spirit and dance-ability. He is a rare combination of new and authentic and the Afro-infused rhythm that permeates his music has made him a favorite among dancers.


The world looks to the Bay Area with green eyes as it is the home to the legendary Salsa orchestra Avance.  Under the direction of mission-native Karl Perazzo (multi-Grammy winner whose other band is Santana), Avance epitomizes the San Francisco Salsa sound.
