About Romeo Santos: King of Bachata

KING OF BACHATA, directed by Charles Todd and Devin Amar, and produced by Sony Music Latin, Chimby Productions and Scheme Engine, combines the making of and best moments of this ambitious concert with the travels of Dominican late-night host, writer and comedian, Joel "The Kid Mero'' Martinez as he journeys to the Caribbean nation to find the soul of bachata. Mero's journey takes us to the restaurants and bars of the countryside of the Dominican Republic, where the sound originated and retraces its rise to international recognition. We also get a behind-the-scenes look at Santos' creative process, his inspirations, and his tireless work in the studio.

This documentary film and concert is a love letter to the genre, inspired by Romeo's Utopia album. Featuring surprise performances from Cardi B and Aventura, the concert is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of Latin culture and a defining moment in the history of Latin music.

Other HBO Latino concert specials available to stream on HBO Max include "Juan Luis Guerra 4.40: Entre Mar y Palmeras" (2021), "Piano y Mujer" (2021), "Havana Street Party Presents: Beatriz Luengo" (2021), "Diego Torres Sinfónico" (2020), "Shakira in Concert: El Dorado World Tour" (2020), as well as "Havana Street Party Presents: Orishas" (2019) and the "En Letra de Otro" series featuring Farruko (2019), Gente de Zona (2018), and Pedro Capó (2017).
