Bachata is a genre of music that originated in the countryside and the rural neighborhoods of the Dominican Republic. Its subjects are often romantic; especially prevalent are tales of heartbreak and sadness. In fact, the original term used to name the genre was amargue ("bitterness," or "bitter music"), until the rather ambiguous (and mood-neutral) term bachata became popular. The form of dance, Bachata, also developed with the music.
If you google bachata and come across the Wikipedia for it, Aventura’s name comes up. Aventura, based in New York City, is today the best known bachata group. Their 2002 single "Obsesión" dominated airwaves in Latin America countries, the US Hispanic market, and Caribbean Spanish speaking Islands. The group made history by having the 1st Bachata group to #1 Single on the Billboard Charts. The song Obsesion sold 1.5 million copies in sales and lasted more than 52 weeks on # 1 on the Latin Billboard charts. One of the most integral voices from this track was Judy Santos’ voice, heard on this track which became an anthem for Latin women all over the world! Following the success of “Obsesion” Judy collaborated with Aventura again and helped Aventura with their second and third # 1 single’s “Angelito” and “La Guerra”.
Marlyn Jimenez took another approach in her start in the music business by already coming from a Music background. In 2005 Marlyn was with a group called “NV” which was sign with Mentao Management which represents Toby Love, ex-member of Aventura. NV was known for their smash hit re-make of No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak”. Marlyn was a shining star in the making with her incredible voice and that sexy Latina look that everyone in the industry was looking for; it helped land an opening spot for shows with The Kings of Bachata, Aventura. At the moment Judy Santos was shopping her demo where it came across Toby Love, that’s where everything came to light and decided to join Marlyn and Judy together. It was an idea that hasn’t been done and it officially made the girls the only girl group singing Bachata Music.
Girlz Talk got discovered in 2008, where they learned their niche and approach on how to make a mark on the Music Industry. Working with Pedro “SP” Polanco, (Toby Love, Notch, Xtreme) the girls started to create music Bachata with an Urban feel but from a woman’s perspective. In a genre dominated by men, a group compromised of these 2 talented women, has been long over due. Evidence to this is the impact that the 2 singles recently released has garnered from their fanbase. Songs like “Lloraras” breakdown the role-reversal of heartaches and breakups in a relationship. But in “Te Voy a Mostrar” they also touch about proving their fidelity and love to their special someone in their life.
These 2 beautiful women have tested these records in Late 2009 touring with Toby Love around the US and abroad and are ready to embark in a successful career full of potential, hard-work and emotions because without the latter, their songs would not come about. They recently signed on with a new management team destined to put in the work to take them to the top. They are currently looking for a place to call home where they could be properly marketed and help them become the “Queens of Bachata”.
