Default To lousat: Thanks

I'm glad you liked my shot, and I hope someday you get to experience that music live. Dominican music has evolved enormously in recent decades, "Perico Ripiao" and even normal Merengue has been displaced for Bachata and even Dembow. The former is still more "academically intense" music, but the latter is not. Dembow and other variations is a fruit of many informal musicians using technology to create something, but little formal musical studies back them.

Needless to say, I don't like Dembow at all, but I can't deny it's our current most popular music, and I doubt its reign is close to end.
