La India Canela Merengue Típico from the Dominican Republic CD

  • $1599


"Call the fire department!" shouts fiery accordionist/singer/composer La India Canela (Lidia María Hernández López) when her driving "country" quintet of accordion, tambora (drum), güira (metal rasp), alto saxophone, and electric bass hits its stride. Rooted in the mountainous Cibao region of the Dominican Republic, the merengue tipicos driving dance beat, aggressive improvisations, and down-home lyrics make it an irresistible Caribbean original. 32-page booklet, 55 minutes.
