Say the word merengue or bachata and if you’re talking about artists from the Dominican Republic, one voice stands out from all the rest. That voice belongs to Héctor Acosta, who was first introduced to the tropical music world as lead vocalist for the Dominican Republic’s famous Los Toros Band, where he earned the nickname “El Torito,” The Little Bull. Known as a superstar in the world of merengue music, Los Toros Band’s records, Se Soltaron and Raices were both hits and helped propel Acosta into superstardom. In 2006, Acosta left the group to form his own orchestra. His premier release, Sigo Siendo Yo generated radio hits such as “Me Voy” and “Primavera Azul,” which showed up on U.S. and Dominican tropical music charts.

DJ Lobo’s passion for music and radio has taken him around the world, playing for crowds internationally as well as well as on TV’s Music Choice channel. His gift of mixing and becoming crowd favorite also landed him membership in the exclusive world renowned DJ crew “The Heavy Hitters.”
