Dva Music Theme in Heroes of the Storm
The music theme for D.va in Heroes of the Storm has a very peculiar rhythm that my latino-upbringing recognized right off the bat. It is not Korean music at all. It is some sort of Merengue-HipHop fusion music. Some of the trumpet rhythm-markers resemble the piano beats in Merengue music, and after the transition, it sounds like a singer’s voice modulation of Puerto Rican Rap (HipHop). The genre has changed a lot since the 90s, and even crossed the Caribbean pond into Venezuela, Panama, Mexico, and other latino countries; and has evolved since then — but this is definitely Merengue-HipHop fusion.
I asked Michael Chu if this means Dva is Half-Korean/Dominican. I’ll update if I get a response. Below I posted the Heroes of the Storm Dva music theme, and two Merengue-HipHop samples. They aren’t exactly the same, but hopefully, you can identify some of the elements listened in Dva’s music theme.
