Sounds of Quiroga: A Salsa, Merengue, Bachata Project
SOQ Project is the fresh and daring vision of a new tropical sound; a sound infused with passionate harmonies, contagious melodies and addictive synergy of afro-Dominican rhythms with the Big Band sound reminiscent of the tropical orchestras of the 1970’s. For their first album as SOQ Project, Gian-Carla Tisera (Bolivia) and Arturo Peña (Dominican Republic) produce original, energy defying dance songs in the genres of Salsa, Merengue and Bachata. For the recording they brought together the talents of more than 25 Caribbean and Latin-American musicians and singers based in New York City and Bolivia. They met in the city’s music scene, Gian-Carla as a singer/composer and Arturo as a drummer/producer. SOQ Project will be released on March 11, 2017 at SOB’s.
