San Juan Sound

LOCAL PERSPECTIVE

“The thing about the Puerto Rico local music scene is that even though it is very small at the moment, it is very diverse (much like the island itself). There are all sorts of genres ranging from rock and punk to bomba and salsa to even jazz and soul. Almost every time something new pops up it is a different and refreshing blend. It is a local scene with many “micro-scenes” in it and this is positive but negative at the same time because it feels very divided. Everybody should come together and help each other more and grow together, the quality of the music is certainly there for it to take off. The economic crisis and the devastation of Hurricane Maria does not allow the local businesses to support musicians in ways that are fair and this makes it very challenging to be an up and coming artist. Musicians need to hustle and constantly find new ways of attracting public and creating revenue. Perhaps this same challenge is what has made the music scene as exciting and impressive as it is today. San Juan Sound is a non profit studio that offers local musicians and schools opportunities in a space with analog equipment they would not have otherwise. A space free from prejudice in which they can create, grow, and join together to discover new and different sounds.” -Marco Torres, Epilogio
