Grammy Award Nominee, Adonis Puentes in Tacoma this Weekend!

It has become evident that Latin music is very well received in the Pacific Northwest, and so are the musicians that play this music. 

That's why it makes me incredible happy to see more, and more great Latino artists coming to our area to delight us with their voices, and music; like  Grammy Award Nominee Adonis Puentes that will be performing at the Rialto Theater in Tacoma this coming Friday, January 30th at 7:30 p.m. 

Now, here are some things that you need to know about Adonis Puentes:

Adonis was born in 1974 in Artemisa, Cuba. At the eage of six, he was playing with his twin brother Alex in a cildren's guitar ensemble. At 14, Adonis was singing and writing original songs, music that can be heard in his latest album Sabor a Café. 

Puentes has lived in Victoria, B.C., since 1998, but Sabor a Café  is Cuban through and through. One of the songs, Anjojos del Firmamento, even features the famed Cuban band, Septeto Nacional de Cuba Ignacio Piñeiro.

Adonis has been nominated for a Juno Award with his brother, and garnered a Grammy award nomination for his lead vocalist work with the nine-piece, L.A.-based Mongorama. He has performed at festivals around the world from South by Southwest in Austin, Texas to Java Jazz in Jakarta, Indonesia.

One of his performances that really caught my attention was the one at Lincoln Center where he shared the stage with Latin music luminaries Larry Harlow and Ruben Blades before 24,000 New York fans. This is huge!
