Bachata is a famous style of Latin music from the Dominican Republic. CUNY’s Dominican Studies Institute at City College created an exciting, interactive website devoted to the history of Dominican Music in the US.

Students: are you interested in Dominican culture in general or want to do some related research? The Institute created a library guide.

This post is part of the library’s #CityTechSoundsGood/#CityTechSuenaBien grant. We have some exciting musical news related to the grant to share soon!
