Joan Soriano live at the Atrium Lincoln Center

Since 1993

Welcome! My name is Joan Soriano...

... my band and I play traditional 'bachata.' We've traveled to many places, taking the groovy sound of my music to dancers and fans around the globe. I'm a modern bachata artist, but I'm also one that stays true to the roots of traditional bachata. My favorite thing to hear is when people tell me how much they like to dance to my songs. This is what fuels my creative machine, and inspires me to come up with more music that people like to dance and also, listen to.
