Orquesta Taino (Tah-ee-no) began as a project to deliver salsa and latin jazz in August of 2010. The concept is very simple, an eight piece band with the sound and elegant sophistication of a big orchestra. Inspired by bands and individuals such as Ray Barretto, Tito Rodriguez, Tito Puente, Machito, Willie Rosario, Bobby Valentin, Manny Oquendo y Libre, Eddie Palmieri and many others, Orquesta Taino has developed into one of the most solid, hard- hitting Salsa bands in the area. The band is led by Percussionist and Lead Vocalist, Aaron Routtenberg. Aaron has toured and performed with some of the biggest names in Salsa including Jerry Rivera, Tito Nieves, Tito Rojas, Tony Vega, La India and more. The percussion section features two of the most respected percussionists on the West Coast in Sean Zuniga and Jonathan Colon. On bass, Orquesta Taino is proud to present Kevin Silveira on bass while the extremely talented Erick Peralta occupies the piano chair. The sizzling horn section is proud to have Abel Figueroa and Mike Rinta on trombone, while Marco Muñoz dazzles audiences with his baritone sax. With this strong vocal section, swinging rhythm section, and blazing horn section that will make you move, we invite you to experience a musical masterpiece that you won’t soon forget. Prepare yourselves for Orquesta Taino!
Latin Rhythm Boys
In 1963, Henry Miranda aka Jr., successfully brought his amazing Puerto Rican Salsa music from Hawaii to California, where he formed Jr. Miranda and His Latin Rhythm Boys. Jr. Miranda’s ability to play the Cuatro was admired by many, he provided young musicians, from all walks of life, mentorship and guidance. His musical legacy and passion for entertainment was then passed on to his sons, Henry Jr. and Earl Miranda.
The modern day version of the orchestra was revived in 2004, by Musical Director, Earl Miranda and Musical Producer, Henry Miranda Jr. Ric Mightone Feliciano’s collaboration began in 2013, as Band Director, Musical Arranger and Writer. Together, the three embarked on a bold direction to record original music, expressing love for the Puerto Rican heritage.
The concept of the high-energy Puerto Rican Salsa comes from the desire to honor their Jibaro roots, with the beautiful sounds of the Puerto Rican cuatro and the Cuban tres to undergrind a driving clave. However, the power of their sound comes from a heavy does of trombones. It’s known as the Trombanga sound, developed by Mon Rivera and Willie Colon.
Their most recent album release titled Celebrando (Label: CDBABY) featuring beautiful performances by Grammy Award Winning artists such as jimmy Bosch, Willy Torres, Chino Nunez, Art Webb and Louie Romero.
