About Joan Soriano "El Duque"

Born in the countryside near Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, Joan Soriano infuses steel string bachata with equal parts romance and grit. He is the star of Adam Taub’s The Duke of Bachata was featured in Alex Wolfe’s acclaimed documentary, Santo Domingo Blues, and is on The Rough Guide’s Bachata compilation.

Joan has performed throughout the USA and Europe. In September 2010, iASO Records launched Joan's first international solo release: El Duque de la Bachata. El Duque spent weeks on the Billboard Top 10 Tropical album chart, won best World Beat Album of 2011 from the Indie Acoustic Project and was played extensively on US radio.

In April 2012, Joan released, La Familia Soriano, which, together with Joan, features his siblings Nelly, Griselda, and Fernando. La Familia Soriano debuted on the Billboard Tropical album chart at #3. Joan has received praise from NPR, the NY Times, Public Radio International, and other respected outlets.

"Soriano’s music is gorgeous. He displays an emotionally powerful voice, versatility with bachata’s classic style of guitar playing, and compelling original compositions about love and loss."
- Dr. Deborah Pacini Hernandez, author, “Bachata: a social history of Dominican popular music”

"Joan Soriano's skills on the six-string glisten without being flashy. He has an appealing style, at once declarative and quietly poetic."
- Milo Miles on NPR’s “Fresh Air”
