MUSIC FROM THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
VOLUME 1: The Island of Quisqueya
42 minutes
Originally released in 1976.

Lying mid-way between Puerto Rico and Cuba in the West Indies is the Dominican Republic, which occupies the eastern two-thirds of an island, the other of which is Haiti. The aboriginal name of the island was Quisqueya, which means ‘mother of the earth.

Half of this CD is devoted to Palos - or drums of African origin, which can be heard throughout most of the Republic. The other half of this CD is devoted to Merengues - the national dance of the Dominican Republic.


Re-released by Folkways in small 'to-order' quantities, these CDs do not have cover art but do include copies of orginal notes.  These are very rare CDs and are not sold in stores.  We special order these from folkways and have them in stock for instant shipment!
