BGM 5 CD - PUERTO RICO
MUJI sources music from around the world, and aims to put a spotlight on international musicians that highlight local traditional melodies.
This audio CD features harmonic music from one of the originators of salsa, Puerto Rico, with the songs of the local Jíbaro people at its center.
Puerto Rico is a small paradise in the Caribbean Sea and known as "the island of charm." Although it is only half the size of Japan's four main islands, it has a rich culture. This is the result of the integration of various races and cultures during the colonial era. Of course, its rich music culture is no exception. Starting from the passionate Salsa, Bomba/Plena of African origin, and Danza, which is deeply influenced by Spain.
Jíbaro music is reflective of life in the countryside, the mountains and the forests. The cuatoro instrument used by the Jíbaro people, is a unique guitar with 5 pairs of double strings and is melancholy instrument. Christmas time and special social gatherings are occasions for the hardworking, hospitable, and self-sufficient, traditional farming communities to celebrate their love of song and dance together.
