During the s and the early s, when bachata had become an outcast music associated with drinking, poverty and prostitution and characterized by rough language and informal musicianship, Leonardo Paniagua forged a distinct style which made him the best selling and best known artist of the period. Eschewing lyrics which dealt with the life in the barrios, Paniagua instead recorded ballad style bachatas, and produced hit after hit for Discos Guarachita and Rhadames Aracena. His friend, singer Danilo Rodriguez, was recording in the Discos Guarachita studios, and he invited Paniagua to come along. Up to that time, Paniagua, a native of the town of La Vega, had never sung in public, but one of the accompanying musicians told Aracena, the producer, that Paniagua had an excellent voice and that they ought to try recording him. Paniagua is a staunch defender of Aracena and his station, maintaining that they kept bachata going when the merengue industry and the mainstream media were doing everything they could to destroy it. Aracena became quite wealthy from bachata—most of the records he played on his station he recorded himself, in his studio, and sold on his label, and the only records available in his famous record store were those he played on Radio Guarachita.

Leonardo Paniagua is one of the Dominican Republic's most popular bachata musicians. He emerged from obscurity to overnight stardom in the s, when he recorded his first 45rpm record, "Amada, Amante" for Discos Guarachita. Throughout the s and s, Paniagua's bachata albums were the best-selling. With his soft voice and romantic style, he appealed beyond bachata's usual working-class audience. He was also one of the first artists to form a movement of romantic-bachateros, artists who helped the genre emerge into mainstream music. He recently played with his orchestra at one of several inaugural events in Arecibo, Puerto Rico's well known Pulguero Bajo Techo. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Leonardo Paniagua.

I'd try to see if she will leave the religion, and if not, you should break it off. Not one little bit. I believe strongly that I was meant to marry my spouse. True Believer Mos base their actions on a set of priorities that make no sense to Nomos. Hopefully she could realize if she was born into one of these cults that also distrust apostates she probably wouldn't see through them either. Somewhere down the road, you will find another girl who will be a much better match for you. Don't wait for it to eventually fall apart or hope that she will change. This is a very delicate territory, so tread carefully. She will introduce you to the church. Every school events, social gathering, especially weekend calls is making me sad.
