Robert Jeand’or is one of Aruba’s very own national treasures. He also has some of the best CSJF stories to tell. “In 2014, we were called by the organizers to come play that same night. One of the bands that was booked wasn’t able to play at the last minute. That turned out to be one great show. The year before we played the festival in the rain. I mean, it was pouring. But we kept on playing and everybody kept on dancing in the rain!” Those performances confirmed yet again what locals already know for decades; that Robert Jeand’or and his Solo Banda Show are not to be missed. As a musician, Robert has an unparalleled resume, having played with the greatest names in salsa and merengue, from Johnny Rivera to Celia Cruz and Juan Luis Guerra. He is also a great mentor to many young musicians on the island.
