"Dr. Julie Sellers tackles a musical genre that has become a sign of identity among Dominicans in a short amount of time. It is a social X-ray in which bachata synthesizes traits of the people of Quisqueya (Dominican Republic) constructed throughout that country's history. Additionally, this book is the result of rigorous research based in fieldwork in the Dominican Republic and New York that includes the testimony of important representatives of this musical expression."--Alexis Mendez, host, Musica Maestro "La Dra. Julie Sellers aborda un genero musical que en poco tiempo se ha convertido en un signo identitario de los dominicanos. Se trata de una radiografia social donde la bachata sintetiza rasgos de la gente de Quisqueya, construidos a lo largo de la historia dominicana de este pais. Ademas este libro es resultado de una rigurosa investgacion, centralizada en un trabajo de campo (en localidades de Republica Dominicana y en Nueva York) que involucra testimonios de importantes representantes de esta expresion musical."--Alexis Mendez, conductor de "Musica Maestro." Bachata--a guitar-based romantic music that debuted in Santo Domingo's urban shantytowns in the 1960s--is today one of the hottest Latin genres. Still, fans and musicians have not forgotten the social stigma the genre carried for decades. This book interweaves bachata's history and development with the socio-political context of Dominican identity. The author argues that its early disfavor resulted from the political climate of its origins and ties between class and race, and proposes that its ultimate acceptance as a symbol of Dominican identity arose from its innovations, the growth of the lower class, and a devoted following among Dominican migrants. La bachata--una musica de guitarra que se estreno en los barrios populares de Santo Domingo en los anos 60--hoy, es uno de los generos latinos mas populares. No obstante, sus aficionados y sus exponentes recuerdan el estigma social asociado que conllevo por decadas. Este libro entreteje la historia y el desarrollo de la bachata con el contexto socio-politico de la identidad dominicana. La autora plantea que su desaprobacion temprana resulto del clima politico en que nacio y los vinculos entre raza y clase social. Propone que su aceptacion final como simbolo de identidad dominicana surge de sus innovaciones, el crecimiento de la clase baja y sus seguidores leales entre los migrantes dominicanos.

The guitar-based music known as bachata was born in the Dominican Republic barrios in the early 1960s. Brought to the U.S. by Dominican migrants, it has continually developed to reflect the changing tastes of fans and musicians. Bachata became increasingly popular among younger Dominican Americans in the 1990s and 2000s. This generation of artists reshaped the music, blending multiple genres with Spanish and English lyrics to reflect their multicultural reality. In this book, 27 artists share their personal and collective insights into how modern bachata provides an intimate representation of what it means to be Dominican, Latino, multicultural and bilingual in a transnational setting.

This volume examines the theme of fusion in Caribbean dance from a wide range of perspectives, including its socio-cultural-historical formation. The contributions are drawn from a conference entitled “Caribbean Fusion Dance Works: Rituals of Modern Society”, which focused primarily on the Caribbean as a unique locale. However, chapters on dance fusions in other diasporic locations and the sustainability of dance as an art form are also included here in order to offer a sense of an inevitable and, in some instances, desirable evolution due to the globalizing forces that continue to influence dance.
