La Voz Latina
Rodriguez, better known as “La Voz Latina” was born in
Mexico City. His family moved to California when he was
4 years old. He grew up listening to classic latin
artists such as La Sonora Matancera, Sonora Santanera,
Perez Prado and Beny More just to name a few. His love
for music and dance are two of his passions. He was
introduced to Salsa music in 1996 when he listened to
Latin Jazz, and this new sound of music immediately
captured his soul. He instantly started taking salsa
lessons which led to the introduction of one of the
greatest and one of the pioneers of salsa dancing –
Rogelio Moreno. Rogelio asked Jorge if he would join
his newly formed company, Salsabor Y Cache in 1999.
Jorge saw this as a huge compliment and a privilege to
be mentored by one of the best. For 4 years Jorge
danced with SYC; teaching, performing and traveling.
After taking a few years from dancing to pursue other
endeavors, Jorge came back to his passion in 2006.
Since Jorge was blessed with the gift of communicating
and speaking well in public, in both English and
Spanish, he decided to use this gift by being the
“voice” in the salsa community. He is known for his
work at Stevens Steakhouse by being the # 1 Announcer
and M.C., hosting all major events. Since then, he has
been invited by others to host Salsa Congresses and
other salsa events locally and abroad. He is well
known for his famous trademark of wearing “sunglasses”.
Jorge recently landed his own radio show as an Announcer
and will be producing his own shows in both languages,
playing latin music and inviting guests on location.
Jorge is proud to be known as “La Voz Latina” and if he
runs into you, he might just ask you to be a guest on
his radio show.
