about the artist

 

 

 

Aventura is one of the most unique artists on the scene today.  After well over a decade of sparring in the music business, these four young, dynamic guys with a seldom-seen chemistry continue to auto-produce soulful, original music that gleams with excellence.  Their nouveau sound fuses bachata (a guitar-based Dominican folkloric music sometimes called the “Dominican blues”) with R & B, hip hop and other American pop and urban styles.  Lead singer and songwriter Anthony “Romeo” Santos’ original songs are often deep, dealing with social issues.  Even when they tackle timeless themes, such as romance and heartbreak, Romeo’s approach always comes from a different angle.

 

Because the Santos boys are so young, it seems incredible that they struggled for eight years before exploding on the scene in the summer of 2002.  Bachata’s conservative base was not accepting of their signature sound; for years the traditional audience either “booed” them off the stage or refused to acknowledge them.  After all, on a scene dominated by traditionalist stars such as Anthony “El Mayimbe” Santos and rising romantic minstrels such as Zacarías Ferreira, Aventura’s music was truly radical.
