The band’s name translates as adventure, but it really means an affair. That’s NYC baby.
They stretched traditional bachata with R&B and pop elements. They also expanded bachata lyrics beyond their traditional heartbreak themes. Aventura more or less created the modern bachata that became popular worldwide.
Their song “Obsesión” (2002) was a global hit. Other hits include “Un Beso,” “Los Infieles,” “El Perdedor,” “Por Un Segundo,” “Dile Al Amor” and others.
Aventura was active from 1997 -to 2011.
They reunited in 2016 for twenty shows at the United Palace in Washington Heights, Manhattan.
The band reunited again in 2020 as Aventura: Inmortal.
