Now one of the most popular forms of Latin music and dance, Bachata (which originated in the Dominican Republic in the 20th century) did not always have the renowned reputation it currently boasts. As recently as the 1970s, Bachata music was associated with crime and poverty. With a significant change in timbre and instrumentation in the 1980s, Bachata’s popularity skyrocketed. Its romantic guitars and signature percussion featuring the guira make Bachata an instantly recognizable, and universally loved genre.
“Requinto” packs all of these signature assets of Bachata with over 200 total sounds. These sounds include 15 Melodic Loops (with stems), percussion loops (and one-shots), and guitar, electric bass, and keyboard/synth one-shots. Created by Bachata recording artist Señorito, this sample pack oozes not only authenticity, but the legacy of Bachata.
