Dominican musician, Joan Soriano, will share his bachata sound with downtown Lewisburg at the Campus Theatre on Wednesday, Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m. General admission tickets for the performance are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors 62+, $10 for youth 18 and under, $10 for Bucknell employees and retirees (limit 2), free for Bucknell students (limit 2), and $10 for non-Bucknell college students (limit 2).

Born in the countryside near Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Soriano blends Afro-Dominican sacred traditions with bachata, imparting his music with down-to-earth spirit and dance-ability, while preserving bachata’s roots and expanding on them. He is the star of Adam Taub’s The Duke of Bachata; was featured in Alex Wolfe’s critically acclaimed documentary, Santo Domingo Blues, and is on The Rough Guide to Bachata compilation.
Bachata is essential to Dominican culture and draws upon a variety of influences from Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean.
This tour engagement is made possible by Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America, a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
