Johnny Ventura

Johnny Ventura is the man who almost singlehandedly developed and modernized the contemporary merengue sound, beginning with his first recordings in the early '60s. He was influenced by the original wave of rock & roll, and quickly imported the energy as well as some dance routines inspired by Elvis. He continued to record into the 1990s, though other merengue singers such as Wilfrido Vargas and Juan Luís Guerra had usurped much of his popularity. ~ John Bush, Rovi

as he was singing to his country, and lamenting the loss of jobs and hope caused by modernizatio n . Known as el Caballo Negro, Ventura became such an important figure in the culture, lives and the political reality of the country that he became Governor of the Capital District, Santo Domingo, and some had tauted him as a potential president. He has since left politics, but still contributes to his nation, its art and its culture in many ways. JAG~

That is no where near a full bio for a man who brought the sounds, spirit and flavor of the Island nation of the Dominican Republic to a loving crowd world over. He had unique sounds and spirit and wrote and performed hundreds of titles, performed in many countries to audiences all over the world, and became a folkloric figure to his people. With titles like Solo por el Muchachito, and El Carbonero, Johny Ventura was just as comfortable telling fictional stories about neighbors and friends

Como ese no hay dos, y si quieres ponerte en forma con tu cuerpo baila sus merengues, quemaras esas grasas, y calorias te lo aseguro.
Eso si, Disfrutalo como si fueras tu que estas en la pista de baile.

They all give you the best performance on stage and CD's, they are definetly the best merengueros of the Dominican Republic, where I have to include Fernandito Villalona "El Mayimbe", Milly Quezada "La Reina del Merengue", Kinito Mendez, Aventura, y otros mas.

Our salsa music is nothing but a sancocho of great performers and lyrics which enhances the true roots of our spanish heritage and salsa music. It will not be worth lo que es hoy sin mencionar " Ventura " one of the greatest.
