Originally from the Dominican Republic, Angel Wagner began his career playing with a cheese grater and fork! At age eleven, Angel went on a professional tour with a Merengue band, later performing in Miami and at Madison Square Garden in New York. Angel has performed with such groups as Aramis Camilo, Orchestra Cafe, Luis Ovalles, and Manguito.
Angel formed Grupo Fantasia in 1993, with musicians from all around the world. Over the years, Fantasia has performed at the Calle Ocho festival in Miami, as well as touring extensively throughout the Northeast. His performances include a multitude of schools, universities, colleges, fundraisers, private functions and musical galas, allowing him to team up with the most exclusive event coordinators and party planners in New England.
