Video and info on Aventura

Posted on May 1, 2007. Filed under: Celebrities & Entertainment, Music |

Bachata is now not only music of old men and broken hearts. Aventura, the Dominican-American singing group, has transformed this musical genre as the remixers of bachata. They infuse urban and international sounds, like Flamenco, and Reggaeton, and R&B, and they cover different life issues, such as domestic violence. And with these transformations, Aventura became the underdog that rose to popularity in Latino music. With their 2002 release of “Obsession,” they broke music charts with more than 3 million sold records, and “Obsession” is a favorite in many Latino dance venues. (I posted the “Obsession” music video below.) They’ve been in the music business for more than 7 years, and the world has finally discovered them. They’ve been featured in Latina magazine last year and they were presented in AIM TV in April 2007. But they’ve swooned the hearts of thousands of Latinas and have become popular among inner-city Latinos since I was in high school (1999-2003).
