Hispanic Heritage Month 2020: This Bachata Evolution Shows How 'Music of the Barrios' Changed the Game


Sept. 30, 2020

With the rise of the genre, many doors began to open for bachateros in the ‘80s and the ‘90s.
This is the time when artists such as Blas Duran, Luis Vargas, Antony Santos, and Juan Luis Guerra began to change the game, fusing bachata with merengue, electric guitars, and other catchy rhythms.
In the 2000s, we were blessed with acts such as Monchy & Alexandra, Aventura , Toby Love , and Xtreme, who all gave life to something we know today as Urban Bachata. Now, many Dominican millennials, such as Romeo Santos , Prince Royce , Natti Natasha , and Leslie Grace , have taken the crown and are not only keeping bachata alive but modernizing it with their own feel and vibe.
Check out the evolution of bachata with the music videos below.
