d.a.d.o. is a New York City-based latin rock band, that was started in October 1997. Our music is the result of combining latin rhythms, such as: bachata, salsa, merengue, cumbia, Andean music, samba and mambo with punk, ska, reggae, funk and rock.
d.a.d.o. stands for "donde algunos decidieron olvidar" which translates as "where some decided to forget". This is the philosophy we live by, and our approach towards our music. In our rhythms, one can see the reflection of our different cultural backgrounds. Antonio is from Argentina, Hector and Fabian are from Ecuador, Eric is from Guatemala, and Robert is from the Dominican Republic.
