Elvin Polanco discovered the existence of Los Tinellers (=Teenagers) de La Bachata with the consultancy of the recording director, Carlos Dalmasi. Today they are the famous group Aventura. They recorded their first musical titled production of twelve songs. Alexandra la Novelitas and others in this festival were amazed that this was their first performance. This was in the Bronx at 163rd Street and Bronx River. Out of this came the first program of bachata called "Cuerdas al Aire - El Bachatazo de la noche" for WKDM 1380 AM with outstanding production by Pedro Felix.
