Merengue: Los Toros Band

It's been a while since we've heard from Los Toros Band. The Dominicans had some internal struggles, after Hector Acosta (one of the fifteen members of the group) left the group early March because of disagreements with the financial administration. Acosta stated that "a band playing at so many parties should be swimming in dollars, but it isn't". He now has his own band, which remarkably includes twelve other Toros members. The remaining members needed a good song to compensate all that negative publicity, and "Dale Con To'" fits the description perfectly. It's merengue at it's best, a fast-paced rhythm with energetic lyrics, confirming Los Toros Band as an institute of latin music.
