The Sydney Bachata Festival is proud to present the ONLY Bachata Concert in Australia. For 2017, we are proud to announce, all the way from the United States (via the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC & PUERTO RICO), one of the most talented BACHATEROS in the world, coming back once again to Australia! DOMENIC MARTE (D-MARTE)!
In 2017 DOMENIC MARTE will be performing live at the 10th Sydney International Bachata Festival! This will be his 2nd tour to Australia, the last time being 2012 and we can honestly say, he puts on a great show and his last concert was one of the best our festival has ever experienced!
DOMINIC MARTE will be backed by a full LIVE BAND!
DOMENIC MARTE, of Puerto Rican & Dominican descent is not only multi-talented, but a man with a bright future. He cleverly fuses rhythms and sounds from his Caribbean background along with modern influences to create his own distinct style of Bachata.
The Boston-based artist, who began his career 14 years ago has recently earned his first No 1 on the tropical songs airplay chart (dated Oct 8) as “Como Quisiera” hops 3-1 in its 13th charting week (up 14 percent in spins in the week ending 25 Sept according to, Neilson Music).
When D Marte spoke to Billboard about reaching No 1 he said, “We are really happy. For us it’s humbling after so many years of fighting. It’s not an easy road but we always keep trying.”
D Marte wears many hats as a song writer and music producer. Signing in Spanish and English and delivering a variety of musical styles from Latin pop and Bachata to some smoothed out R&B, he covers a wide audience and has a large following worldwide.
Albums that he is well known for include: “Intimamente”, “Deseos De Amarte”, “The Voice” and “For The World”. The song “Deseos De Amarte”, from the same album was his first debut on the billboard charts in 2007, peaking at No 5. His previous chart peak was in 2012 when “Muero de Ceolos” featuring Luz Rios reached No 4. His peak in 2016 with “Como Quisiera” is ahead of a new album, to be release early 2017.
D Marte has been nominated for the following Awards;
