Sunday, July 1, 2012

Many of you in San Diego were first introduced to Joan Soriano in 2009 when Ritmo Bello shared his story as an up and coming bachata music artist featured in Adam Taub’s documentary “El Duque de la Bachata”.  If you’ve been following his story you know that he continues to gain much success in his musical career as he travels the world sharing his music.

We are fortunate to see the Dominican perform live at Blue Agave Nightclub July 20th and I encourage all of you to support this great artist.  For those of you new to him and his music here is a great clip of him in concert performing “Que Pasara Mañana”:

To find out more information about the concert and obtain tickets please visit the event page we set up on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group.

See you all at Blue Agave Nightclub for Joan Soriano live in concert!
