Dominican Bachata music legend Anthony Santos AKA el Mayimbe (the boss) is considered to be the artist who brought the traditional music form to the mainstream. The beloved bachatero updated the folk blues tradition with a modern sound, introducing the electric guitar and replacing the original form's bawdier lyrics with charming romantic poetry.
