Merengue Tipico from the Dominican Republic - La India Canela (2008)

While not as famous worldwide as merengue de orquesta--or big band merengue--merengue tipico is its fiery progenitor and country cousin, a hotstepping, accordion-fueled noise from the mountainous Cibao region of the Dominician Republic. La India Canela, the tipico`s ambassador and accordion goddess, simply calls it "country" music, and in the Dominician Republic that means layered percussive patterns and lightning-fast sax and accordion improvisations. With a cast of merengue tipico all-stars including Rodolfa Oscar de la Rosa Arias and Ramon Eladio Jimenez on tambora and guira respectively, Canela, herself a pioneering female bandleader, rips through a set of her own compositions and genre staples.
