The guitar-based music known as bachata was born in the marginalized barrios of the Dominican Republic in the early 1960s, although it has constantly evolved to better represent the current realities of its fans and musicians. Carried to the United States with Dominican migrants, bachata became increasingly popular among the younger generations of Dominican Americans in the 1990s and 2000s. This generation of artists reshaped bachata by blending multiple genres with Spanish and English to reflect their multicultural and multilingual realities. The thirty-one artists included in this interview book share personal and collective insights into how their modern bachata provides an intimate representation of what it means to be Dominican, Latino, multicultural, and bilingual in a transnational setting.
