Christian music can be heard throughout Dominican Republic. Just walk past a church and listen. Some of the music is very formal and sacred while other types are very lively. Many times one can hear a band set up in the park playing. If you don't understand Spanish you would think the bands were playing the typical music of the island, merengue or bachata. Sometimes it is nice to listen to positive lyrics, or the old traditional songs that people grew up with. There are also modern Christian bands plenty in the country. Rap, Reggaeton, Rock, Contemporary and Traditional Christian music. People expressing their belief and love for El Senor.

The Christmas/ Navidad holiday music here in Dominican Republic is wonderful. Of course there is the old traditional Christmas songs and hymns played in the traditional way that the entire world knows. There is also the Dominican Christmas songs and music. These songs are like the rest of the lively island music using the Bachata and Merengue styles to get the Christmas message across. Many of these songs are very danceable and great fun to listen and dance to.
