Biography

Doble Impacto (9) is a genuine Cuban band based in Antwerp (Belgium). They have been very successful in Europe playing at all the major festivals (North Sea Jazz, Antilliaanse Feesten, …) and have shared the podium with many of the top Salsa talents such as Manolito y su trabuco, Orquesta Aragon, Ricardo Lembo, Grupo Gale, Candido Fabré, Albita Rodriguez, radio/TV productions and Belgian artist.

“Through their unique style and songs, Doble Impacto differentiates itself from other traditional groups.



Strikingly besides Cuban salsa, Doble Impacto also brings Dominican merengue. This mix of cultures leads to a surprisingly beautiful result where the sultry Cuban melancholy blends into the dynamic Dominican music. The high musical caliber, the energy and the pleasure with which is performed, makes it that even the public can not sit. Even the furniture swings along!



Since instrumentist/componist Juan Carlos Rosquete (director) and pianist Javier Arenas (manager) formed Doble Impacto in November 1998, the band has become so popular in the Benelux that he says “I think everybody around knows the band, but in other places I guess it is different.”



During their performances Doble Impacto aims to excite you with a dance-show that is driven by variations of the different Caribean rhythms (Salsa, Merengue, Latino, etc) and although their music is strongly influenced by Salsa and Merengue, Doble Impacto also plays a fusion style which mixes in regge, tecno and latin rap.
