With a mix of Jazz, Progressive, Rock and Afro-Dominican Folk music, it is little wonder why El Trio cannot be linked to one single genre. Led by composer Jonatan Piña Duluc who is a musical genius in his own right with Symphonic and Latin dance music compositions under his belt, El Trio’s gigs are known to pack quite the punch with the electric Latin-rock-fusion that pours out. It is not only the energy that leaves concert-goers ecstatic, but the totality of their performance.
In terms of their beginnings, while the rest of Santiago were inclined towards traditional Latin jazz or rock influenced by the USA and UK, El Trio brought a sound that was highly unique. El Trio first gained popularity in the underground scenes and were quickly recognized and brought up to be featured in radio shows and magazines around the world.
Despite commanding several musical styles, El Trio’s gigs are hardly random or all-over-the-place, and on the contrary they pride themselves in being able to provide original sets whilst being rich and engaging.
