Aventura is a Dominican-American bachata music group. The band was originally formed in 1994 in The Bronx, New York with members Anthony Santos, Lenny Santos, Max Santos, and Henry Santos Jeter. Self-taught and determined to break into the music industry, Aventura made their big break in 1999, with the hopes of breaking Dominican bachata music out from its traditional base and fuse it with modern popular sounds like hip hop and R&B. To date they have released six studio albums and three live recordings.
Their most recent studio release "The Last" spawned four hit singles, two of which topped the Latin charts, and has been the #1 album for 23 weeks on Billboard Top Latin Albums. At the Premio Lo Nuestro 2010 awards, the album was awarded "Tropical Album of the Year". At the Billboard Latin Music Awards of 2010 in held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Aventura won nine awards including one for Album of the Year.
In the "Intro" of this album, Anthony Santos states that this could possibly be their last album. However, the group said that this is their last album with their label Premium Latin Music. It is anticipated that there will more be Aventura albums to come in the near future.
