Janine Santana

Shows - Jazz

KUVO listeners may know Janine Santana as a Latin Jazz musician and dedicated supporter of the pleasures that this unique jazz station brings to the neighborhood and the world.

Of Puerto Rican descent – via Brooklyn, New York and Trenton, New Jersey – Janine has lived with a deep love for Afro-Cuban and Caribbean traditions as well as Jazz for as long as she can remember.

Steeped in traditional and straight-ahead jazz – a fondness she inherited from her trumpeter mom – Janine has a passionate love for the great American art form.

A professional performing artist in a variety of genres for the past 35 years, Janine is now delighted to share music as the host of Salsa Con Jazz as she continues to record and perform.
