Bachata: Why You’re Hearing This Dominican Rhythm Everywhere

Episode 24 | 9m 29s

We visited the Mexican-American band La Santa Cecilia to learn how they mix latin genres with pop and rock. Join Nahre in learning about this distinctly latin rhythm as she attempts to create her own bachata fusion song.
