Bachata Timing. First, I want to tell you exactly who I'm writing this note for: attention bachata dancers of all skill levels, dance instructors, musicians, and music lovers!

I have found something that we all can use. I know that for fact because I am a bachata enthusiast just like you.

"I bought this CD at the Houston Bachata Weekender and its taken my bachata dancing to another level. Its helping to train my ears on the subtle intricacies of the music. Its similar to salsa in that once you understand the ingredients of the music it becomes A LOT more fun to dance to because you actively hear the timing of each instrument. Its now much easier to freestyle and have fun with bachata instead of dancing to the same beat counts every time. Carlos is a really cool guy and its great that he put this together." - John (pittysteel)

Joan Soriano "El Duque De La Bachata" is a phenomenal guitarist and singer of bachata songs.

Soriano lives in Villa Mella, an impoverished town in the Dominican Republic, where he develops his music and basks in his heritage. Soriano specializes in the unique genre of “Dominican bachata,” which reflects an important part of Dominican culture.

Soriano is also a practitioner of Afro-Dominican traditional “‘palo” and “gaga” styles which he incorporates into bachata, creating a musical blend influenced not only by Latin cultures, but also from Africa, Europe, Latin America and Caribbean cultures.

Soriano developed an interest in playing music as a young boy in his hometown, where he made his first guitar out of a metal box and fishing line. He began by starting a band with his siblings, and eventually started performing with some of the Dominican Republic’s greatest classic merengue and bachata musicians.

Today, he is globally recognized for his talent.Bachata songs often tell tales of romance, sadness, and heartbreak, aiming to evoke strong emotions in their listeners using all central musical components – lyrics, melody and rhythm.
