THE REAL REPUBLICA UPDATE: FIRST MERENGUE

THE REAL REPUBLICA UPDATE: FIRST MERENGUE

Going to keep this one real short and sweet. During a recent visit to Cabarete, DR I found myself amidst some very musically-inclined seniors of both Dominican and Cuban descent. They talked my ears off about all the music genres of the Carribbean, and long story short, revealed to me the first commercial Merengue song ever produced. It was called "El Negrito Del Batey" by Alberto Beltran Y La Sonora Matancera. Enjoy!
