Summary
" ... the fascinating tale of how bachata, a music genre once vilified by the Latin upper class as the bawdy 'ghetto' soundtrack of brothels and vulgar cabarets, came to rival merengue and salsa as the preferred music of the Latin world. Through performances, first-person interviews and telling 'verité' scenes with guitarist and singer/songwriter Luis Vargas and his fellow bachateros, viewers are treated to not only a bittersweet success story of one immigrant artist, but also to an understanding of this once-maligned musical style"--Container
