Album Review
Reviewed 2007-01-25
From southern Veracruz, Mexico. A collection of son Jarocho, which features rhythmic, harmonic patterns, great strings, layers of melodies, vocals, and great playing throughout. Solid folk music, note that in most cases the voices are fainter than the strings. Read the notes for a good history of band & music.

1. Light, midtempo and catchy w/trading vocals & nice strings.
*2. Nice harp, midtempo strings w/a toe-tapping melody.
*3. Cool rattle/perc. Upbeat, tripping strings, a great sound.
4. Bright & happy mid/uptempo harp instrumental.
*5. Upbeat with a relaxed, casual feeling.
6. Mid, a vocal conversation. Driving strings, soaring voices.
*7. Fast folk version of La Bamba. Yee haw!
8. Relaxed and midtempo. Kind of a sad sound.
*9. An upbeat dance. Busy, happy, fast & driving.
