LA FUERZA POSITIVA
La Fuerza Positiva started in the Bronx in the fall of 1997. Initially, a group of musicians in recovery came together to play music, as a way to focus their energies and contribute to the community. The core members, Afro-Cuban and Latino rhythm musicians, joined forces with a bassist and pianist who specialized in R&B, Rock and Jazz. Soon, a horn section was added. This combination led to the unique and classic sound of the group.
La Fuerza Positiva has a vision - put forth a positive message with their music. Playing traditional salsa, these talented and dedicated musicians have made a name for themselves throughout the metropolitan area. Wherever they play, the crowds get up to dance. Their music is infectious, passionate, and filled with good vibes.
Juan Santiago, the lead singer and bassist, and Robert Warren, the keyboardist, are the writing team responsible for most of the band''s original songs. Juan, with his distinctive vocal style, crafts beautiful lyrics and chords, while Robert lends his R&B and Jazz influences to the compositions, giving the group a unique sound. The horn section utilizes their years of experience and classical training to construct punchy and exciting horn lines, seasoned with Afro-Cuban and Jazz elements. All of this combines to give La Fuereza Positiva the classic salsa feel that audiences have enjoyed for eight years.
The name ''La Fuerza Positiva'' means "Positive Force", and its members are united together to bring about a change through their music.
