Aventura, a New York-based Dominican boy band with roots in bachata, formed in 1994, determined to break bachata from its traditional base and fuse it with the other sounds they heard every day, like hip-hop and R&B. They proceeded to learn all the skills they needed themselves, from production to instruments. In 1999, signed to BMG, they released their debut, which fell between the cracks of both the burgeoning Latin movement and the pop/R&B chart-toppers. Three years would pass before they released We Broke the Rules. The single "Obsesion" became a hit with Latin youth, finding a strong crossover into hip-hop. Love & Hate (2003) and God's Project (2005) followed. ~ Chris Nickson
