Escuchemos. Let's listen.

Merengue Típico y Una Marioneta Provocadora: Traditional Merengue in Santo Domingo and a Provocative Puppet (English subtitles)

We are in Santo Domingo at the Parque Colón checking out the Ministry of Tourism’s band playing some merengue típico, or traditional merengue music that features accordion, saxophone and percussion. An added element was the puppeteer that hopped on stage with the band. We guarantee that you have never seen a puppet with such provocative dance moves. Victor also talks to one of the band members. / Estamos en Santo Domingo en el Parque Colón escuchando al conjunto del Ministerio de Turismo que toca merengue típico, un género en que se destacan el acordeón, el saxófono, y percusión. También un marionetista se subió al escenario, y les aseguramos que nunca han visto una marioneta bailar de forma tan provocadora.
