"Ay Que Chula Te Queda La Faldita, Ay Que Chula Te Queda Mamasita"...remember dancing to those lyrics!


In 1988, Pochy y Su Coco Band original members, Pochy Familia, Kinito Mendez and Bobby Rafael revolutionized merengue. Taking the genre to a different level using street Dominican slang as lyrics mixing it with constant harmonious breaks and intensifying the speed. This was the beginning of what we call the new generation of merengue, where rhythm becomes its core.
