Bachata or "bolero campesino" has been traditionally popular in the rural areas and the countryside in the Dominican Republic. A mixture of African elements combined with Latin /Caribbean rhythms along with strong influences from the Puerto Rican boleros; its subjects speak of romance, sadness, heartbreak and loss, the passions of a people long repressed. Though originally thought of as delinquent music it has thrived to become as popular as Merengue, Salsa and Plena. Celebrate the rich musical traditions of the Dominican Republic with Trio 809 Ladies performing their own original songs!
