AllMusic Review by

Included are Los Pregoneros del Puerto from Vera Cruz, the cuatro-led Aires Colombianos and Tejas's own Lydia Mendoza in a 1998 World Music Institute concert in New York. The Pregoneros are hot enough to strip paint and Aires Colombianos is delightful in a style very hard to find. Mendoza has been better served on record and there's klutzy klap-along in spots, but two out of three are terrific.
