Review: Grand Merengue Concert at the Amphitheatre of Puerto Plata

Friday, October 6, there was a grand merengue concert in the amphitheater at the Malecón of Puerto Plata. Entrance to this concert was free. Several thousand mostly young Dominicans and a few tourists gratefully took this opportunity for a night out. First, Kiko el Presidente with his Merengue Tipico band performed. Next, it was Fefita La Grande’s turn. The wildly popular elderly Meregue Tipico interpreter brought the audience into ecstasy. Although this artist is about 80 years old, she still moves smoothly on stage and manages to ravish the audience.

She was followed by Wilfrido Vargas and Johnny Ventura, the former mayor of Santo Domingo with his slogan: Mammi Rica. This was pure mambo. To end the evening, Kinito Méndez gave a spectacular show. Besides his popular Merengue music, he performed some songs of Haitian influences. It was almost a Voodoo show. The audience loved it. The show ended at half past one. It was a great evening with good music and a free entertainment. Soon El Torito (Bachata and Merengue) will do a performance at the amphitheater in Puerto Plata as well. As soon as we know more details about it, we will, of course, let you know.
