Merengue4-Four is locally the Best Latin Band of Caribbean Music & Rhythms in New Orleans performing a variety of Merengue Tipico - Perico Ripiao, Bachata & Son Cubano. Merengue4-Four is a professional four member Latin band. We play traditional Merengue from the Dominican Republic called Perico Ripiao which is played with the accordion; no other Latin band in the State of Louisiana plays this kind of Merengue. Perico Ripiao is a high energy fast pace music that makes everyone happy and makes your hips move uncontrollably. We also play Bachata and Son Cubano. Merengue4-Four was formed in August of 2013 and has been rehearsing weekly since then. All four musicians play live different instruments depending on the song choice and all four musicians are from the Dominican Republic.
