The tracks on this compilation of music from the Dominican Republic are taken almost entirely from recordings made in the 1990s and early 2000s, and represent a disparate collection of musical styles: Milly & Los Vecinos' "En Tus Manos" is built on a nice, brisk horn chart and a jaunty soca-like backbeat, while Charytin's "Corazón de Acero" is all melodramatically

Overview

The tracks on this compilation of music from the Dominican Republic are taken almost entirely from recordings made in the 1990s and early 2000s, and represent a disparate collection of musical styles: Milly & Los Vecinos' "En Tus Manos" is built on a nice, brisk horn chart and a jaunty soca-like backbeat, while Charytin's "Corazón de Acero" is all melodramatically hushed intensity and Los Illegales' "La Morena" opens with a startlingly harsh techno intro before lapsing into a more conventional electro-Latin groove. In some cases, it seems that the selections were even made randomly -- giving an overall impression that either the collection or the musical culture itself is rather slapdash (and the Dominican Republic's musical culture most certainly is not).
