The Bachata Legends unite revered figures from bachata's storied past. They include: Edilio Paredes, Leonardo Paniagua, Ramon Cordero, Augusto Santos, and El Chivo Sin Ley
In the early 1980s, Ramon Cordero, Isidro Cabrera "El Chivo Sin Ley", Leonardo Paniagua, Augusto Santos, and Edilio Paredes collaborated to create a performance series called "Lunes de Amargue" (amargue translates loosely as the bitter-sweet feeling of unrealized love). The series was successful and copycat "Noches de Amargues" soon surfaced. Bachata began to be referred to as "musica de amargue", a term still used today. The amargue series attracted audiences from all classes of Dominican society, and marked the beginning of the end of bachata's marginalization. The magnetism of these artists is irresistible, and their historical collaboration is now renewed in The Bachata Legends.
