Salsa Legend Raulin Rosendo Concert

A Dominican Republic-born sonero transplanted to New York City, salsa star Raulin Rosendo was born in Santo Domingo on August 30, 1957. Steeped in the rhythms of Afro-Antilles music throughout his childhood, he began his performing career at the age of 12 as a member of the merengue group El Chivo y Su Banda, later appearing with acts including Fernandito VillalonaConjunto Clásico, and Los Vecinos. Known as “the Angry Sonero,” Rosendo made his solo debut with 1991’s Salsa, Solamente Salsa; by 1993 he was recording in New York with producer Ricky Gonzalez, scoring the hits “Amor en Secreto” and “Santo Domingo.” The subsequent success of albums including ¡Lo Maximo!, 1996’s Dominicano Para El Mundo, 1997’s ¡Contrólate!, and 1998’s Llego la Leyestablished him among the biggest salsa performers of the period. Donde Me Coja la Noche followed in 1999; subsequent releases have included Raulin en Venezuela (2001), Fama Es Peligrosa (2003), Mujer Como Tu (2005), and Dame Otra Oportunidad (2006).

Senorito en Vivo Bachata Concert

The colorful sounds of the streets of New York allow for a unique palette from which to create music. Señorito was born in Brooklyn, New York, and coming from a musically inclined family, it has been said that “la música corre en su sangre”. Señorito began developing his talent as a guitarist from the age of 10. His training started with Música Trio and he later delved in the realm of bachata as a teenager. His discipline intertwined with his musical passion has never been exclusive to bachata; Señorito appreciates the importance of fusion, of mingling different genres to create the freshest of sounds. Transcending cultural norms with interests ranging from R&B to classical Indian music, Señorito hopes to foster music’s universal language.

Armed with his guitar and vocals, Señorito has established his respect in the industry serving as musical director for artists such as Andy Andy and Domenic Marte. His talents have led him to tour the world as a guitarist for talents such as Zacarias Ferreira, Grupo Optimo, Elvis Martinez, Rafy Burgos, Carlos y Alejandra and Loisaidas.

Also a producer, Señorito has had the privilege to record for talents such as Frankie J, 24Horas, Prince Royce, Grupo Optimo, Jorge Celedon, Leny (Aventura), Carlos y Alejandra, Xtreme and many more! With experience, exposure, dedication and creativity, the genre of bachata is soon to be revolutionized. Señorito is sure to achieve immortality through his work he hopes to share his experience with all of his beautiful fans throughout the journey. Señorito’s here to remind you: Music is the soul of language Senorito’s music can be heard at Dance Congresses around the World as many performers dance to sngs like Sin Ti, Mentira & La Propuesta to name a few!

JR Super Sensual Bachata Concert
Growing up in the diverse streets of New York City, JR. recalls walking in his neighborhood and hearing music and rhythms from all over the world. While he listened to Aventura and Merengue Típico at home, he also listened to artists like Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, and John Mayer. It’s no wonder his music today resonates a rhythmic fusion of Latino pop, electro-beats and soul.

JR.’s songs echo an innocence yet seductive storytelling that provokes nostalgia and excitement, romance and reality, all at the same time. His sound is original, smooth, sonic, and sexy. His suave vocals complement an array of percussive rhythms and bass that will surely have the masses turning up the volume and hitting the dance floor. Under music label 848 Enterprises and Bisono Management Company, JR. is about to explode into the Latin music scene and showcase the next generation of pop music
