Dahrio Wonder is a San Francisco Bay Area native who fits no mold, initiates a change of mind, and continuously steps outside the box with any project he works on. Of African American and Filipino decent, his multi- cultural background drives his mission to inspire people around the world with music and dance no matter the age or genre of music they favor.
Having already worked with some of the industry's notable recording artists as a professional choreographer and dancer, Dahrio has transcended from an accomplished behind the scenes facilitator, to an all-around entertainer, singer, songwriter, and producer. As a dancer, choreographer and director he has performed and worked with Britney Spears, Madonna, Kevin Hart, Jamie Foxx, Melanie Fiona, An’gela Winbush, Zumba® Fitness Celebrity instructors Gina Grant & Tanya Beardsley, “Young California” sensation John Hart and the late salsa legend Celia Cruz.
In 2007 he penned a music publishing deal with Foxx King/Bug Music (ASCAP), and was also an opening act on select dates for The Isley Brothers US tour. In 2012, Wonder joined the Gina & Tanya Rock the Stage Tour, entertaining crowds in cities throughout the US as well as Canada and the UK. Most recently, Wonder has had his music featured on one of Taiwan’s biggest TV stations and was also a featured artist in the Zumba® Fitness Z-Life Magazine August issue.
Following up the releases of 2007’s fantasy WONDERLAND and 2010’s fresh and stimulating WONDER, Dahrio released WONDEROUS on 6/26/ 12, a digital EP compilation that allows him to get back to the foundation of his career, dance. Shying away from the complex styles of his past musical projects, Dahrio chose to keep lyrics and arrangements simple but creative, the style fun, and the energy infectious. With influences from his world travels, Wonder strategically blends the musical styles of Pop, House, R&B, and Soul to create a sweet collective of music that has only one mission, to make you dance! He returns to the rawness and realness of what music's first purpose is; it makes you feel good, moves your body involuntarily, and improves any mood by taking you on a roller coaster of full-bodied emotions.
Being a charming, innovative and an imaginary thinker, Dahrio Wonder brings creativity, class, and stellar energy to his live stage performances. He captivates people with his un-mistakable stage presence that's exciting and sexy while being a true conductor of the stage, band and crowd. Dahrio Wonder’s music allows you to feel uninhibited. His intuitive take on a new wave of music is impeccable and he plans to continue to make his impression on the world as a superb entertainer and recording artist for years to come.
