Juan-Tony Guzman : Casita de Campo

This is one of the most popular love songs from the Dominican Republic. It describes a modest, and yet beautiful, little rural house in the Cibao region where the composer evokes the consummation of a passionate and virginal love. It is a "cancion-bolero," a typical Caribbean romantic song form in quadruple meter, slow-paced, which is also a centerpiece of serenades.

Guayacanal : SSA : Francisco J, : Sheet Music : 48004971 : 073999049718

Francisco J, : Guayacanal

Mangulina is a dance derived from Zapateado Espanol (a Spanish heel-tapping dance). Guayacanal, originally written in the 1950's by Dominican songwriters Luis Kalaff and Bienvenido Brens, embodies what is known as the Mangulina today, and is so famous that when asked, people often think it's a folk song. This piece is best accompanied with tamborra (a double-headed drum from the Dominican Republic) and guira (a metal scraper from the Dominican Republic, scraped with a metal fork).
