Los Hermanos Rosario is composed by the brothers Rafa, Luis and Tony Rosario. From its beginnings, Los Hermanos Rosario started successfully, making their first international tour in the United States in 1983. With the launch of Otra Vez, Los Hermanos Rosario became the leading popular music orchestra from the Dominican Republic, with songs like: “Rubia de Fuego,” “Ingrata” and “Mi Tonto Amor.” In 1992, they released the album Insuperable. Hit songs from the album include: “Brindame una Copa,” “Desde que la Vi,” and “Mil Horas” which was included in the soundtrack of the movie High Heels (Tacones Lejanos) by Pedro Almodovar. Los Rosario became the first group in the Merengue genre to reach the Billboard Top 10 (achieved previously only by Juan Luis Guerra and 440).
Toño Rosario is a Grammy-award nominee Merengue musician. As a member of Los Hermanos Rosario, Rosario has been a key figure in popularizing Merengue music. Rosario is the top selling Merengue artist of all time. The three-time Grammy nominee has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.
Sergio Vargas began his career as a merengue singer in 1980 when he participated in the Festival de la Voz, a Dominican Republic contest sponsored by Santo Domingo television’s channel 9. He came in second place. 1991 was a productive year in Vargas’ career; he earned one of his multiple Casandra awards after participating in a television special named “Este es mi País” (“This is my Country”). In 1993, Vargas received a golden album, and participated in Miami’s Calle Ocho Festival.
