Music from the Dominican Republic: Vol. 3, Cradle of the New World

Music from the Dominican Republic: Vol. 3, Cradle of the New World, continues in the vein of prior volumes in the series, offering songs that range from religious salves in praise of the Virgin Mary to dances such as the cumbia, the national dance of Colombia. Palos drums, which can reach up to 5 ft. in height, are featured prominently in both secular and religious songs and provide percussion for accordion and vocal melodies. Liner notes include a brief overview of the history of the Dominican Republic, track notes with lyrics in English and Spanish, and pictures of the featured musicians.
