JUNO nominated recording artists Junior Santos and Warren Dean Flandez close the Festival on Sunday, July 24. Don’t Miss It!
Join us for an unforgettable evening of Afro Dominican Latin jazz with the Junior Santos band at 7 pm followed by R&B soul-singer, Warren Dean Flandez at 9 pm.
Junior Santos – Experience the impassioned and invigorating merge of Afro-Dominican rhythms with contemporary jazz by Dominican-born percussionist, Junior Santos and his band. His work has done a tremendous job showcasing and developing the unique music and dance genre called Pambiche – a style original to the Dominican Republic and derived from merengue tipico. His work has been influenced by Afro-Dominican and Afro-Cuban music, as well as jazz artists such as Steve Gadd, Chick Corea, Yellowjackets and Spyro Gyra.
Warren Dean Flandez – Get inspired by the musical musings of Warren Dean Flandez for an unforgettable show that will include a choir and dancers! Not confined by genre-specific stereotypes, Warren’s music is charged with urban-infused soul and will delight listeners with a wide vocal range. He’s been described as a blend of Deitrick Haddon and Pharrell, showing eclecticism and a solid spiritual foundation (The Journal of Gospel). Describing his own music simply as “songs with purpose,” his music is inspirational and founded in his gospel roots, but is accessible for and enjoyed by mainstream audiences around the world.
