MUSIC FROM THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
VOLUME 3: The Cradle of the New World
38 minutes
Originally released in 1976.

Diverse collection with a range from children's songs to heavy spiritual ritual music. Lot's of good African influenced drumming/dance called 'calenda' that was always associated with religious festivities. It was prohibited in the 18th century and was forced to become syncretized. We also can hear a 10 minute track of a very bizarre British tradition called 'Mummies'.

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!
