Who We Are

Daniel Catan Daniel Catán

It is the mission of Friends of Daniel Catán to share and to spread Daniel's music throughout the world and to ensure his works are available for generations to come.


For years, Andrea Puente-Catán has been working to preserve and share Daniel's music. Countless hours had been spent cataloging his musical scores, ensuring these documents are protected as well as taking steps to complete Daniel's final opera: Meet John Doe.

By mere luck, Mike Chavez, a fan of Daniel, reached out to Andrea in search of rare copies of Daniel's music--especially Salsipuedes.  The two soon began collaborating.  Friends of Daniel Catán was born.
