Santo Domingo Blues (Alex Wolfe | USA | 74 min.)

Official Link: http://www.santodomingoblues.com/

Singer-songwriter Luis Vargas is a bachatero — meaning he plays Bachata, a genre of music once maligned by the Dominican Republic’s elite as the soundtrack of the ghetto. This documentary traces the roots of Bachata and the trajectory of both the music’s and the musician’s rise to symbols of national pride. Performances and interviews showcase the Bachata scene in the Dominican Republic and New York.
