Merengue Tipico con Tatico Henriquez

If I keep finding 45’s like this, I’m gonna have to visit the Dominican Republic someday. In fact, I think I’m going to throw my passport away and just move there. Forever.

When I hear music from people like Tatico Henriquez, it would make me consider doing something rash as this. The kinetic style of the music taps into something I suppose. Anyway, Tatico was known as one of the best accordionists of the merengue tipico. His career began in the 1960s and the early 1970s. He was known for his skill on the accordion and the addition of new instruments to a standard merengue tipico band. Unfortunately his life and career ended in a drunk driving accident in Santo Domingo. Still a huge influence in the merengue scene to this day. Enjoy!

    Thanks Jonny!!! You ever want to do a KONK interview, I would be honored. Or if you want to do a latin funk/no wave mix for the site, that would be cool too. – Sonido Franko
