y yo bailando la Bachata original tambien conocida como ”Bolero Campesino” o ”musica de amargue” en la epoca se los 60s.
The original Bachata genre first surfaced in the early 1960s but didn’t have an official name till the 1970s. The genre resembled the Bolero in its timing, shapes/figures, musical structure, and instrumentation. The main musical difference between bolero and bachata was the transition from maracas to guira, nylon string guitar replaced by steel strings electric guitar, and the added syncopation in the bass line which gives the music a different feel, influencing the interpretation of the dancers. Consequentially, this added more color to the dance including a sharper break from the steps as opposed to the more subtle glide/drag from its predecessors. Bachata draws a lot from its Cuban roots in Bolero and Son, but also from its Dominican counterpart, Merengue. In this video, we attempt to re-visit history by drawing the connection between Bachata and its most direct predecessor the Bolero Campesino. How do you feel about Bachata, Bolero, and Merengue?
Song: Jose Manuel Calderon - "Condena”
