Ecos de Borinquen

Ecos de Borinquen represents the best of today's música jíbara—music from the mountainous regions of Puerto Rico—interpreted by six top-flight musicians from the island. Stringed instruments and sung poetic forms that date back hundreds of years to Spanish prototypes are combined with the Caribbean percussion sounds of the güiro rasp and hand drums.
