AllMusic Review by

The plena is to Afro-Rican music what the calypso is to Trinidad -- dance music, oral history, and Op-Ed page in song. Canario was perhaps the greatest composer of plenas ever, and this brand-new CD version of his only reasonably available recording contains many of his best-known recordings, among them "Cartaron a Elena" and the classic "Santa Maria."
