Born in 1972, Soriano plays a romantic and lilting style of bachata that might be characterized as Dominicana. Pitched in-between the music's rural origins and poppier contemporary sound (which even includes a crunk-bachata hybrid), Soriano's take on the DR's national music embraces Afro-Dominican rhythms like palo and gaga as well as merengue, son, and bolero. El Duque de la Bachata, as Joan is known, leads the six-piece Soriano Family Band.
