Clave y Afinque

CLAVE - A rhythmic pattern for a temporal organization in Latin Tropical Music.
AFINQUE - Subtle, Mellow Sound

Some of the greatest Latin musicians in Wisconsin are part of this unique Latin sound.
The musical group was created by Jesus "Joey" Burgos, considered the best Latin vocalist
in Milwaukee WI and surrounding areas. His experience in Latin music expands from the
first Latin group to perform at Milwaukee's Summerfest, with the musical group Los
Hermanos Burgos. He also performed with La Controversia, Felix Burgos Sextet, La
Tropicana and Madisalsa Just to mention a few of the musical groups that he has had the privilege
of working with.
After working in Milwaukee Jesus ventured out to the Island of Puerto Rico where he recorded
with Tempo 74. He composed and recorded as lead vocal his number one hit, El Conflicto. With a great
career behind him in Puerto Rico, Joey came back to his hometown Milwaukee and continues to
impress with his great music by creating the salsa group Clave y Afinque and performing in different
venues such as The Wherehouse, Cubanitas, La Pica. Clave y Afinque specialism is Salsa Music but they
also perform Merengue, Son Montuno and Latin Ballads.
