This acoustic night of bachata features Edilio Paredes, one of the founding fathers of the Dominican Republic's most popular music, which is internationally adored alongside salsa and merengue. With a career spanning more than 40 years, Paredes has recorded as the lead guitar on over a thousand tracks and arranged and recorded important works by the music's most influential artists, inspiring three generations along the way. He will be joined by special guests Ramon Cordero, who's high, plaintive voice since the 1960's, has been one of the most distinctive in bachata; Andre Veloz, the stunning young female bachatera vocalist; and Silo "Jeremias" Jimenez on guitar
