I have been trying to find out more about the latest music but have not been successfull. It would be nice to know what songs/artist are popular at the moment. There must be something new since summer 2012 ;-)

The latest music.

with bachata, who can tell the difference?

I agree that bachata all sound quite a bit alike: the same instruments, the same rhythms, the same sort of voices. But the lyrics are different and some of the singers are different. It's like rap, with the difference is that rap is deliberately annoying, while bachata is only repetitive, like cumbia and vallenato and sambas.

I find it is more easily endured when one is outside of several cervezas.

Popular music everywhere is tedious, formulaic and repetitive: the rhythms, instruments and voices vary with the country.

actually, rap might be annoying to many, but it does have some creative production qualities. bachata has the same bass line in every song. i never got far playing an instrument. i played bass 45 years ago, and i was not very good. with a week of brushing up, i could play bass in a bachata band, and that is not a good thing.
