The resurgence of cultural and racial pride in the United States during the 1960s and the 1970s had a parallel in Puerto Rico -- so much so that today, the mere sound of musica jibara can provoke a cheer of cultural and national pride. In the forward-looking words of the young singer on this recording, Karol Aurora De Jesus Reyes, the music "will make us shine around the world, until the people hear the music and say, 'Look, that is the music of Puerto Rico.' It's the music of my country, that which represents us and that which identifies us as a people." Leader Miguel Santiago Diaz hand-picked this group of virtuosic instrumentalists to let the music shine at its brightest.
Extensive notes in English and Spanish, 16 tracks, 67 minutes.
