El Duque De La Bachata: Film Screening
Proceeds to benefit Haitian earthquake victims!
Filmmaker Adam Taub (La Quincea?era) follows Joan Soriano, a bachata musician, as he strives to make a success of his career and improve the lives of the extended family he leaves behind in the rural Dominican Republic.
Bachata is a Dominican musical genre that emerged in the wake of the repressive Trujillo dictatorship. Recorded for the first time in 1961, its sound was demonized as vulgar and only began to receive recognition after many of its practitioners made the switch to electric instruments in the 1990s. Journeying to New York and Chicago in pursuit of stardom, Soriano is aware that the price of his ambition will be the pain of separation from his family. But he also knows it may be worth paying, as a music producer promises to record a CD of his work.
