Federico Alberto Cuello Camilo, the Ambassador of Dominican Republic to S. Korea

The music and dance of the Dominican Republic that embodies both story-telling and liveliness: the bachata. The bachata was first recorded just after the end of a dictatorship in 1962 and has since become a symbol of the nation. Later in 1992, artist Juan Luis Guerra won the Grammy Award for his “Bachata Rosa” album, taking the bachata to the world stage. In 2019, UNESCO recognized its value as a local culture as well as its role in bringing people together and creating connections, and enlisted it as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. The bachata dance has also become one of the most loved Latin dances in the world, including Korea. This week, we’ll meet with Federico Alberto Cuello Camilo, the Ambassador of the Dominican Republic to S. Korea, to dive deep into bachata’s world of freedom, passion, and liveliness.
