Biography

Ramón Alberto Gálvez, also known as “El Gringo De La Bachata” was born in San Francisco de Macoris, Dominican Republic.

From a very young age, Ramon sang at family gatherings and parties. His musical creativity was nurtured in a very “bohemian” environment. His father, Manuel de Jesus Galvez, a well-known bachatero from the 60s and 70s, was a great influence to Ramon.

Ramon later moved to New York where he had the opportunity to record his first album. He was able to gain some interest among the local “Nuyorican” community, but his dream was to become a well-known musician in his own country.

His album, Paz En La Cama, helped him achieve his dream. He was an instant star in The Dominican Republic as well as in Panama, Puerto Rico, and St. Martin.

He went on to produce several other hits, including “Un Poquito De Amor,” “Como Te Voy a Ovidar,” “Quiereme,” and “El Osito Dormillon” which brought him even more fame in his home country and all around the world.

“El Gringo” is considered one of the best representatives of “La Sangre nueva de la Bachata”, that is, a new generation of musicians who have brought the genre to the forefront of Latin music.
