Island Time Radio #6

This is a mix of Bachata music of the late 80/90’s. This genre of music originated in the Dominican Republic and it’s a type of tropical-folky blues, with a heavy emphasis on songwriting. The themes sang, are typically about heartbreak, a lost love, or betrayal. These are ballads, sung with deep emotion against the backdrop of highly skilled guitar playing.

I chose specifically this timeframe because, to me, the sound is the perfect blend between traditional guitar playing and the introduction of electronic synthesizers & drum machines. I grew up listening and dancing to many of these artists at backyard bbq’s, holiday parties, and family events. Enjoy!
