BlackBerry Bachata Radio pays tribute to 'the forbidden dance' and the music it represents. Bachata is a genre of Latin American music that originated in the Dominican Republic in the first half of the 20th century with primarily Spanish influences and also remnants of indigenous and African musical elements, representative of the cultural diversity of the Dominican Republic population.
The first recorded compositions of bachata were done by José Manuel Calderón from the Dominican Republic. Bachata originates from bolero and son (and later, from the mid-1980s, merengue). The form of dance, bachata, also developed with the music. BlackBerry Bachata Radio is one of 120 radio stations on the BlackBerry Radio network. Submit your music for airplay today.
