Eddie Santiago has been a star in the Spanish-speaking world since the ’80s. Emoting over a tinkly keyboard and subdued clave rhythms, he’s filled the Latin charts with more than 35 sappy tales of amor. Domingo Quiñones was once regarded as just another pretty-boy crooner, but not anymore. In 1999, Quiñones showed his roots in the tougher sound of ’70s salsa when he played the tragic role of the late warbler Héctor Lavoe in an off-Broadway musical. On his most recent CD, Poeta y Guerrero, Quiñones continues the theme with a song about prison life. These guys—who tonight, along with José Alberto, are billed as “Los Bravos de la Salsa”—will offer both melodrama and edgy passion when the show begins at 9 p.m. at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, 2660 Woodley Road NW. $40.
