What is Bachata?
Bachata is a subgenre of Latin Music. If you are looking for more Latin songs, visit our Hot 50 Spanish songs list. Bachata is both a dance and a genre of music. It originated in the Dominican Republic in the first half of the 20th century with Indigenous, African, and European musical elements.
A standard bachata group consists of seven instruments: Requinto (lead guitar), Segunda (rhythm guitar), electric guitar, guitar, bass guitar, bongos, and güira.
“Bachata arose in the working class areas of the country… The genre’s popularity arose from the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the rhythm began to reach the mainstream media.” Wikipedia
