Anthony Santos at Theatre at Westbury

Anthony Santos

Anthony Santos is a Dominican bachata musician renowned for his role in redefining the genre to include romantic music. Santos entered onto the scene in the early 1990s, beginning his career as the güira player for fellow bachatero Luis Vargas. Santos became the first rural bachatero to reach audience, with his hit “Voy pa’llá”, shortly after Blas Durán had introduced the electric guitar into the genre.

Santos’ adoption of soft romantic lyrics was more socially accepted than the bawdy style common to bachata before him, and he shortly became the genre’s leading artist, helping move bachata into the mainstream.
