  1. I can’t express how happy I am to see you post this rare Joseito Mateo LP. He really is the King of Merengue. About two years ago on Dominican TV they asked him why was his merengue always so good and he simply responded “It has to swing when I sing, I’m African!”

    You’re going to make a lot of people dance with this great artist. Thanks for the swing!

  3. That’s quite interesting. Why did merengue change so much? Also in the videos with merengue clasico from the 70s or 80s – they dance totally different (with more swing, more style) then dominicans dance today.

    Maybe the relaxed groove moved to bachata (boleros). While orchestre merengue lost maybe more then the half of his market space to the upcoming bachata wave from the mid of the 90s.

    With reggaeton influences the mambo merengue became new advance the last years.

    The cd-market is totally down. Less new album productions and fast produced promotion stuff for the internet…

  5. Merengue changed in multiple ways. For one, it became almost twice as fast as it usewd to be earlier.
    I’ve been told once that it was under the influence of using cocaine that it became so fast today. if it’s true….?
