Joe Bataan "The King of Latin Soul" is leaving New York; He is embarking on his first music tour to Tokyo, Japan. The show has sold out the special reserve tables for that performance on June 5, 2010. The general admission is now the hot ticket. Our good friend and honorary Chicano brother, Mr. Shin Miyata of Music Camp and Barrio Gold Records is the promoter who invited Mr. Bataan to Tokyo. Yvonne Nitollano will accompany Joe on vocals and Peter "Choki" Quintero, band leader will play Timbales. Japanese sensation Masa Ikeda, who played with Joe in the 1970s, will join the band on Trombone. Bon Voyage, Joe.

Before they take the trip across the Pacific Ocean to the Land of the Rising Sun, the Joe Bataan International Tour will share a special ministry on May 29 and a live concert on May 30, in the Golden State of California USA. They return to Northern California for a concert in beautiful San Jose, California on June 12, 2010 at the Avalon Night Club for Latin Music Inc.

Joe, Yvonne, Choke will be joined again by Ray Poncin, music director and Art and Kelly Galvan's' Kool Katz band for the concert. After visiting North California Joe Bataan and company return home to New York to prepare for his trip to England.

Joe was born Bataan Nitollano in 1942 in Spanish Harlem, New York City.

Joe "Afro-Filipino Ordinary Guy" Bataan is a favorite in our Chicano and Latino communities. His hit songs, "Under the Street Lamp", "My Cloud", "Gypsy Woman", "La Botella", "Super Woman", "The Prayer" and "I Wish You Love" are some sample songs of his signature style.

Bataan was influenced by two music styles: the Latin Boogaloo and Rhythm & Blues. He has released 16 record albums on the Fania, Salsoul, and Vampi Soul labels with re-issues in Japan and Spain.
