Event

Water Colors | Latin Jazz Night featuring Papo Santiago and His Infraverde Orchestra

Weekly free outdoor Jazz music series at the Lake Stage in Polk Bros Park supported by the Paul M Angell Family Foundation.

Presented by the Jazz Institute of Chicago.

Papo Santigo started his journey in his birthplace Ponce, Puerto Rico. While studying at Universidad Interamericana de San German Puerto Rico, Santiago was recruited by La Terrifica in the early 1970’s to play bari-saxophone.  The bands international acclaim paved the way for Santiago’s incursion into the world of salsa. 

Santiago moved to Chicago in the 1980’s where he carved a niche for himself and mastered other instruments which include flute, vocals, and guitar. Santiago’s exploration as a professional singer was a natural step in in the evolution of his sonero style which includes unique improvisation.  In his improvisations, Santiago combines a street-wise sense of humor with a unique approach to rhythm and swing. 

Some of Santiago’s original music include Boca de Rio, Corrillo and Elvira which can be found on Spotify and Apple iTunes.
