The Dominican Squeezebox Goes Digital

Fulanito creates a furor at home and abroad

Vargas sees Fulanito's commercial success as both a vindication for Arsenio de la Rosa and a unifying force among Dominican immigrants, serving as a reminder of their country roots, particularly for their U.S.-born offspring. "Arsenio played old-style merengue for many years and people always looked down on it, young people in particular," he says. "Now you see young people getting into perico ripiao, and you see old people rapping."
