Janine Santana, Latin Jazz percussionist, project leader for the 6-12 piece Janine Santana Latin Jazz Ensemble (featuring Richie Cole, Jose Madera and many other jazzers in the international music community), radio host, actor, artist, designer and writer is a well respected fireball of creative activity. Currently residing in the Front Range area of Colorado, she decends from Puerto Rican and Finnish ancestry and spent her childhood and youth in Brooklyn, NY and Trenton, NJ, respectively. She began working and studying as a professional actor at a very young age, and focussed more fiercely on music recording and performance along with broadcasting after moving to Colorado permanently in 1994.

Janine's recording Soft as Granite (2008) reflects her Latin Jazz skills as a percussionist, leader, arranger, and studio artist. It is still her top-selling artistic endeaver, and she is enthusiastically preparing for another recording and documentary project that will feature a plethora of musicians, including international strongholds in the Latin Jazz industry and incredible young talents who are the investments in the future of our music legacy. (we cannot tell you more yet...sshhhhh)

Please enjoy browsing this website for music news, art and announcements. Feel free to contact us, we are pretty friendly people and enjoy hearing from everyone!

Janine wishes to thank her friends, fans and supporters for their undying love and the many contributions we've received already to do this the right way. 

 As of July 2014 we have reached 10% of our $37,000 goal. 

We are building a new and exciting funding campaign, but invite those who wish to continue donating while the weeks it takes to do so to use the donate button on the right side of this website. 100% goes into the recording fund. 

Thanks so much and we are delighted to tell you that as we reach our goal we are continuing to arrange and compose...It will be an exciting recording!
