... is a bolero rhythm, enriched with musical influences from Africa. Traditionally, it is played by two or three guitars, accompanied by bongos, maracas, a güira and a bass. Bachata music has long been associated with the poorer social backgrounds of Santo Domingo. With a bad radio diffusion in its infancy, it has attracted more interest from the 1980s through the expansion of mass media, tourism development, and the enthusiasm of Dominican musicians. It now enjoys international popularity and became, like Merengue, a symbol of the Dominican Republic.
