1 - There are few notes on these recordings. Several of the performers announce that they are from the town of Sabaneta, but there are about a dozen places with this name in the Dominican Republic so the region is uncertain. Although the first few tracks are played by a Cibao-type accordion group, merengue típico cibaeño has been popular in other regions as well since at least the 1950s. The largest town called Sabaneta is near the capital, so they may have been recorded there. [Source: Editor]
:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Another call-and-response song, this one a plena sung by a younger girl. It appears to be a folk love song that has been turned into a song of praise for Trujillo. Some of the words are the same as in T 2042 track 19 (Puchinga del Alma). [Source: Editor]
