    Default Sosua Beach Music

    Yes, the singer in the last video had a harsh voice.

    I think you will enjoy this one much more

    Wonderful! Thanks. I will look for these guys. I hope they make enough pesos to continue bringing this music to the beach.

    They are part of a group of 4, Grupo Sosua Colibri. I've posted a video of the group and will be posting another later today.

    I've been told that Jose also sings Malaguena Salarosa very well. I plan to record that next time.

    I love the enthusiasm of the guy playing the can with a bic pen.

    I have a consumer grade video camera and currently using the microphone on it. I have ordered a microphone and hope to try it out this weekend.

    The acoustics at the beach are not made for recording singing, but it helped to get closer to them. i just posted another of the full group of 4 and had them stand closer together than when I did the first videos of the group, and also stood closer to them, getting just the upper body. That helped, at least with the volume.

    i was just commenting on the tones of the instruments. the sound of the pen on the grater thing around 1.35 sounds really correct.

    The grater thing is called a guira. They used to be made from gourds with notches cut into the sides.

    Voy P'alla was the first bachata played on Dominican radio. It was done as a merengue cover with a female singer and when it became popular the bachata version of it took off.

    Does anyone know what persiana means? Shutter?
