Music from the Dominican Republic: Vol. 4, Songs from the North

Bordering the Atlantic Ocean, the northern areas of the Dominican Republic are home to the Cordillera Septentrional mountains and farmlands in the Cibao valley. Songs such as "Canto de Hacha (Chopping Song)" and "Tumbando el gri-gri (Felling the gri-gri)" are intended to accompany woodcutting and feature overlapping a capella solo and chorus singing. Also included are dances such as "Bolero," which features maracas and Spanish guitar. Liner notes include track notes with lyrics in Spanish and English.
