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)
