Versatile and Captivating Dinorah!
Latin infused American classics, Spanish guitar accompanying soulful vocals, a hip trio that plays everything from Sinatra to Sting to Latin standards, or the full 5 piece Crosswinds dance band – Dinorah offers many options.
Serious musicians with solid National and International credentials, Dinorah and Crosswinds impress everyone with their versatility and musicianship. A favorite choice for Quinceaneras and weddings - Dinorah often performs the ceremony music as a solo acoustic guitar, then moves into cocktails with her acoustic trio (two guitars and percussion), followed by her dance band “Crosswinds” performing all the popular dance hits as well as the Latin Rock, Salsa, Cumbia, and other Latin styles!
