 “Merengue, bachata & salsa with the electrifying Rafael & Energía Dominicana.”
- Patricio Chávez, El Chasqui Latino, Montreal

“Quebecois-Dominican merengue artist Rafael impresses on his debut single that also marks
 the debut of Montreal label Vivo Musique. The track has an upbeat and vibrant sound, fuelled
by accordion and possessing an infectious groove laid down by the nine-piece Energía Dominicana. A great way to shake off the winter blues.  It fuels anticipation for a full-length album release later this year.”  
- Kerry Doole, NewCanadianMusic.ca
