Bachata is the traditional style of dancing that originated in Venezuela and Cuba. Anthony Santos is probably one of the earliest artists to introduce Bachata to an international audience. Impressed by the success of Jose Maria and Jose Silva, they decided to form a company that would help them popularize their dance style. They named it after themselves, which pretty much tells you what the company was all about at the time. Considered by some to be among the greatest Bachata artists of all time, Anthony Santos changed the genre by adding romance to his dance music. After only a few years, his popularity exploded and he was seen as the person responsible for making Bachata into a worldwide sensation.
Bachata and its growth around the world
Today there are over forty Bachata artists spread throughout the world. The best bachata bands are from the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Cuba, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Chile, and Brazil. There is also a growing trend of bachata artists hailing from the United States.
In recent years, there has been a growing interest in bachata music. Several dance music artists have gained attention for their beautiful Latin-inspired beats. One example is Jaromile Betanchel, who was discovered in the Bay Area of California. She has become known as one of the best bachata bands in the world.
While many people dance to traditional Latin music in the United States, Latin music is enjoying a huge resurgence in popularity. This is largely due to the popularity of salsa and modern-day Cuban music. In addition to bachata artists, other Latin music artists are finding tremendous success in their own unique ways.
The best bachata artists have gained worldwide popularity through word of mouth and from playing live in concert. Many of these artists also began their careers playing in small club-type bars, eventually making it to major clubs and performing to sold-out audiences that loved their original style of music. Not all of these artists chose to pursue music as a career. Many of them began playing bachata music as a way to relax after working long hours in office buildings or as a simple hobby. Some of these artists found that they enjoyed the sound of Latin music and began honing their skills.
One of the more popular styles of Latin music is modern-day bachata. Latin pop stars like Chiddy Bang, Nelly, and Miley Cyrus have become household names thanks to their amazing renditions of Latin songs. The artists break down the barriers between western pop and Latin music and have made it their own. Latin singers have even reached fame and fortune while singing their songs.
How to become a top artist
The first step to becoming one of the top 17 artists is by becoming famous. There are several ways to do this, including performing at popular nightclubs and bars around the world. Another way is to get into the music industry. Several popular Latin music artists have made it big by signing with well-known recording labels. Getting signed to a record label gives you a much better chance of selling your CD.
A final way to fame and fortune is through film and video. The internet has made it easy for people from around the world to create and upload videos of themselves in the Dominican Republic. Videos can be uploaded for free, but those who have good production values can make their videos sell. Companies like Pixar and Disney have created several videos featuring local bachata artists. Many of these videos have become viral, traveling all over the world and garnering millions of views. Some of them have been featured on YouTube.
