    Default Piano Bars in the DR

    Are there any good piano bars in the DR ? I've got the itch to listen some good piano licks in a cool atmosphere. Thanks K

    Actually, I went to a really cool piano bar in the capital more than 20 years ago. Just don't remember where it was. There must be at least ONE in the country- Anybody ?? Thanks K

    20 years ago was before the bachata became a decent commercial venture. nobody plays real music anymore

    I'm surprised to see I'm not the only one that thinks their is no music in DR. The only thing they have is this awful merengue and bachata. You hear people about DR: sun, dance, music...

    Music? What music, what they listen to here is not music!

    Bachata, merengue and salsa are listened to all over the world, and even by those that have no cultural connection to Latinos or the DR: Bachata festivals and congresses around the World - Festivalsero.com

    That doesn't make it good music.

    JLG is an exception though. He knows how to make 'good' bachata and merengue.

    Popular and good are not necessarily the same thing.

    bachata draws small crowds of curiosity seekers in small international venues. there are no real bachata bands that were formed in places like Bosnia, for example.
