Bachata Warmup Song from Bachatando

This one needs a little bit explaining. I have been teaching bachata last weekend at the Bachatando Festival in Brussels last weekend. As I was in my hotel room I decided to try and make some bachata music. I have always stuck to salsa, R&B and pop, so this is totally new for me. Anyway, I created a short loop and it sounded…well…ok. I’m all about mixing music styles (and dance styles) so I tried some african rhythms and I liked it. Might even use it as the start of a new bachata show.

The next day I had to teach a Bachata Mix workshop with my partner Caroline Menya. For the warm up I played my loop, that I created the day before. I played it again for the demonstration of moves at the end of the workshop. At the end of the workshop a lot of people came up to me, asking who made the music and where they can buy it. I told them it would be available for download this week, so here it is. It is not a finished song. It’s just the loop I created, so consider this version 0.1. I will turn this into a finished song, complete with rap in Swahili by Caroline.
