Here is one of my favorite merengues from the king of merengue, Elvis Crespo. ” La Foto se me Borro” is a great dance song. Of all the genres in Latin music, I prefer merengue the best. Merengue is happy music, I just can’t sit still when I’m listening to good merengue. Merengue was birthed in The Dominican republic when an aging military leader who had been injured, was having a party and everyone was dancing. The military leader was dancing with a limp and out of respect for him, the other party goers copied his style of dance and we have merengue.
