Top 10 Bachata Songs of all Time

July 6, 2011

This week in the Advanced Salsa Class at LDA, we did a recap of the past 4 salsa moves to help people remember them, so there’s no new move for this week. in the meantime, here’s my favourite 10 Bachata songs.

Not being a big listener of Bachata in general, I got help from Australia’s most influential Bachata teacher and promoter, and one of the directors of the Sydney International Bachata Festival, Nestor Manuelian. Half of these are his choices.

  1. X-Treme - Te Extraño
  2. Luis Fonsi - No me doy por vencido
  3. Aventura - Peligro
  4. 4Ever - Porque Te Amo
  5. Don Omar ft Hector El Torito - Maldito Email
  6. Domenic Marte – Deseos de Amarte
  7. Aventura - Obsesion
  8. Zacarias Ferreira – Amiga Veneno
  9. Prince Royce –  Mi Ultima Carta
  10. Aventura - Dile Al Amor

As you can probably tell, I’m more of a fan of the newer stuff than the old traditional stuff, although I expect  a proper roasting when I put this up on Facebook :)

Update: As expected, A number of other great songs have come up in since I posted this, so for completeness’ sake, here’s another few great Bachata songs:

  1. Monchy y Alexandra – Dos Locos
  2. Juan Luis Guerra – Bachata Rosa
  3. Monchy y Alexandra – Hoja en blanco
  4. Aventura – Mi corazoncito
  5. Anthony Santos – Por Mi Timidez
  6. Zacarias Ferreira – Me Libere
  7. Michael Bublé – Home
  8. Mojito Project & Romy feat. Croma Latina – Te Quedas Te Vas
  9. Grupo Rush  – Jasmine
  10. Sarah Connor – From Sarah with Love
  11. Edward Maya – Stereo Love Bachata Mix
  12. Aventura – Our Song
  13. Aventura – Ensename a Olvidar

  1. Hey Uly, nice to see you talking about Bachata :). And yes, do you have a very modern taste. These are some Bachatas that were a hit and that influenced the industry to what it is today (most of this songs date back to late 90′s). I’m sure you will remember those songs!

    - Monchy y Alejandra – Dos locos
    - Aventura – Obsecion
    - Juan Luis Guerra – Bachata Rosa (even though it is mostly a Bolero)
    - Moncy y Alejandra – Hoja en Blanco
    - Aventura – Mi corazoncito
    - Antony Santos – Por mi timidez
    - Zacarias Ferreira – Me libere

  2. Thanks Juan,

    I’ve updated the list to add your choices in. There’s some great ones in there… you may well have even better taste than Nestor (but don’t let him know I said that :) )
