Many new Bachata bands are trying up to catch this new wave of the Urban Latin Bachata. Only a few bands have been able to stand out from the rest, and this is the case of Opalo. Their distinctive approach to Urban Latin Bachata has pushed this band to the top of the charts in America, especially with their hit single “Amor Sincero”.
Opalo is a Bachata band composed of 4 members: Alex, Edward, Ricky and Yeudy. All of the four members are from the Dominican Republic, so their music style, even though it is the new urban Bachata, are deeply set into their Dominican style roots.
Opalo maintains the high pitch guitar sound used commonly in the Dominican style Bachata on their music. However they have added strong base lines and hip-hop tunes into their music which softens their music to give listeners a truly enjoyable experience. Their second album “Tiempo de relevo” is a true interpretation of this. Their single “Amor Sincero” is a fast pace song with a positive beat. This is a song that could be use for choreography because of the several music breaks and changes. The second single “Si no the vuelvo a ver” is another fast pace Bachata with a catchy melody.
Opalo music’s has not been heard in Australia. Few schools and DJs play their music so it has not reached their true potential yet. The Bachateros highly recommend their music, especially both hit singles “Amor sincero” and “Si no te vuelvo a ver”. We hope to see bands like this receive the play time that they deserve.
