  • The Salsa-Bachata-Reggaeton-Kizomba Article
    26 Missing You by Sanchez take a listen 27 Bonafide Love by Buju Banton Wayne Wonder take a listen Almost any Latin music aficionado born around 1972 1978 may remember how between 1989 1993 those Jamaican dancehall beats were simply used as the foundation and backdrop for the Reggae en Español pioneering artists El General and Nando Boom who simply recorded over those same exact Jamaican beats using Spanish lyrics and chants almost exact replicas of the Jamaican songs but in Spanish Just like many Salsa instructors of today preach about the dance worldwide yet know nothing of the history the same is exactly true in Reggaetón the pioneers of Reggaetón aka Reggae en Español are El General and Nando Boom Both pioneers are from Panamá thus Reggae en Español aka Reggaetón was born in Panamá which is something very very very few Reggaetón instructors and artists of today would know or even acknowledge because most mistakenly think that Reggaetón is from Puerto Rico but it s not it s from Panamá By 1995 Reggaetón was pushed out from the underneath the Salsa umbrella into the World Music category but then soon after became a stand alone under Dancehall and Spanish Reggae and Reggaeton titles once again leaving only Salsa Dura and Salsa Romántica and rightfully so Pioneer of Reggaeton El General Five of the pioneering and most iconic Reggaetón songs include 28 Tu Pum Pum by El General take a listen 29 Te Ves Buena by El General take a listen 30 Muévelo by El General take a listen 31 Son Bow by El General take a listen 32 Dem Bow by Nando Boom take a listen SALSA EXPANDED TO INCLUDE MERENGUE AND BACHATA WELL KIND OF Bachata Yes it is true those who were old enough to remember the explosion of Bachata in 1998 may remember how Bachata was included on Salsa CDs and thrust into the Salsa parties The far reaching Nuyorican Movement was coming to its end around 1989 which opened the door to the Dominican Movement in New York which I affectionately call the Nuyorminican Movement Up to this time Palladium dancers were forced to yield to Salsa Romántica and Merengue but then all of them were forced to be subjected to Tejano and Latin Pop Then Salsa Dura dancers were forced to yield to the explosion of Reggae en Español dancers and of course Reggae en Español dancers were forced to yield to what later became known and is known today as Reggaetón by Puerto Rican Dominican and Cuban artists Then Salsa Romántica and Merengue dancers had to yield to Bachata By 2004 all seemed to balance out with each genre demonstrating a measure of understanding for other genres but then in 2012 Salsa dancers and Bachata dancers were forced to make room for Cubana aka Timba and Salsaton and Kizomba including Semba Cubana Timba quickly took its place in separate rooms at mixed parties which eased the tensions among the On1 On2 and Cubana dancers but still Kizomba remained stubborn and to this day presents the predicament that Bachata did it s being shoved under the Salsa umbrella forcing Salsa dancers to break their vibes and feelings from the dancing to make room for a genre that disrupts the flow the mood of the music the dancing and the ambience Salsa organizers are promoting Salsa parties but inviting Kizomba dancers who expect Kizomba thus creating deep rooted hostility against the Kizomba genre as a whole More on this in the Kizomba section below Merengue and Bachata hit the scene hard in 1988 and 1998 respectively and both quickly competed with and in many areas dominated over Salsa Romántica especially in New York Jersey Connecticut and in Latin America The struggle between the Puerto Rican die hards and the Dominican die hards was settled in 2001 when Bachata s popularity reached such enormous heights that Bachata became independent and separate from Salsa with music production companies Bachata is founded on the Bolero which is an Afro Cuban rhythm Many Bachata instructors fail to mention and acknowledge this but based on the arithmetic in proper musicality it is absolutely true that the Bolero which is of Afro Cuban descent is the founding rhythm for the Bachata which is of Dominican descent Grammy Award winning musician Juan Luis Guerra is considered by some to be a pioneer in Merengue and Bachata although perhaps it would be better said that he secured high grounds for himself by helping to popularize Merengue and Bachata worldwide In such a regard he did pioneer in the popularity of both rhythms Grammy Award Winning Musician Juan Luis Guerra Today dance instructors use terms such as Modern Bachata Rueda de Bachata BachaTango Bachata Sensual and Dominican Bachata because change is natural and mis education is natural too Is there such a thing as Dominican Bachata if Bachata is from the Dominican Republic For example can it be said that a Son Montuno Afro Cuban rhythm that was recorded and produced in Budapest Hungary instead of Matanzas Cuba is not Cuban simply because it was not recorded in Cuba What if the song was produced by someone who was not Cuban and not a single Cuban was in the recording is it no longer Cuban at its core even if played traditionally Bachata There are so many fusions with the rhythm and dance now which have been titled variously for marketing purposes are they still Dominican or are they less Dominican because they have been fused These are important questions that have been brought up and they will be debated endlessly for years to come The way that Bachata is danced in the Dominican Republic is far different than how it is danced in other parts of the world primarily because dancers and musicians in the Dominican Republic have a much wider range of music and dance than in other parts of the world Using Dominican Bachata as a mini umbrella to represent
