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.

With a buoyant style described by The Washington Post as “a vibrant mix of virtuosity, energy and empathy,” Danú has emerged as one of the world’s foremost Irish music ensembles. Irish Music Magazine declared that Danú “stirs the blood and lifts the heart.” For two decades, the band’s virtuosi players on flute, tin whistle, fiddle, button accordion and bouzouki, and their vocals, have brought spirit-raising music to audiences around the globe. Praised by The New York Times for “fierce fiddle reels” and “pensive ballads,” Danú arrives at the perfect time of year to share a glorious mix of traditional Irish music.
