Eduardo Sarante whose artistic pseudonym is “Yiyo Sarante” exponent of hits like Pirata, Maldita Primavera, Tierra Mala, Nos engañó a los dos and Tres semanas, was born in Baní “La Capital del Sur”, the most important city in the province of Peravia in the Dominican Republic.
He comes from a musical family, the seventh son of nine brothers, five musicians and singers. In 1999 Yiyo performed in Bávaro (Punta Cana, Dominican Republic), and four years later he was a member of the Oro Duro orchestra led by his brother Julián Sarante.
In 2011 Yiyo obtained international recognition thanks to the support obtained from radio stations in the state of Florida and the East Coast of the United States for the single Maldita Primavera from his EP titled Single launched in 2103.
During that same year, Sarante made his first tour outside his native country, taking him to step on the different stages of some Caribbean countries such as the Virgin Islands, Aruba, and Saint Martin.
Yiyo Sarante’s discography https://www.facebook.com/yiyosarante extends from his albums Lo Nuevo de Yiyo Sarante (EP-2013), La Voz de la Salsa (2015), La Voz de la Salsa. Vol 2 (2019), Clásicos (2019) to his most recent singles released this year Quiero Perderme Contigo, Llorarás, Eres Pasado, Demonio, and Prohíbeme Verte.
On the other hand, the singer, composer, and extraordinaire accordionist, Fefita La Grande (Manuela Josefa Cabrera Taveras) during the last four decades has been an icon of the Dominican Merengue Típico.
This representative of the main musical genre of the Dominican Republic was born on September 18th, 1944, in the municipality of San José de Ocoa. Her father was Eliseo “Seito” Cabrera, an accordionist and owner of a musical instrument repair shop.
Her incursion into the artistic world at a professional level was in 1976 with her first LP Si quiere venir que venga, obtaining great acceptance by the public due to the incorporation of the Saxophone, Congas, and Electric Bass in her melodies when until now there had only been groups of Merengue with traditional instruments: Accordion, Güiro, and Tamboril.
With this new variant of Merengue and with a musical environment dominated by men, Fefita became the first woman to transcend borders and travel to Europe to present this new and authentic style of the Caribbean, in addition to taking her performance to different countries of Latin America thus defining the path for the new generations of Dominican women dedicated to music.
Throughout her artistic career, the performer of La Chiflera (1999), has received various distinctions and has played at Yankee Stadium (New York) with Romeo Santos, and her popularity has led her to participate in major film productions in her country native as Nueba Yol 3: Bajo la nueva ley (1997), Perico Ripiao (2003), and Ponchao (2013) among others.
In 2017, she made the single La Pimienta Es La Que Pica in collaboration with Milly Quezada and Maridalia Hernández, obtaining great support from her followers.
Fefita La Grande https://www.facebook.com/viejafefard has recorded more than 200 songs and her repertoire of greatest hits includes Vamo’ a hablar inglés, O te menea o te apea. Her latest production is La Ciudad Corazón launched in 2021.
