AllMusic Review by Jason Ankeny

Los Pleneros de la 21 and El Quintero Criollo team for Puerto Rico Tropical, an intriguing collection exploring the African and Hispanic roots of the nation's musical heritage. Interpreting styles ranging from bomba and plena rhythms to jibaro (country folk favorites), the two groups draw on a variety of instruments including cuatro, guitars, hand drums, bass, congas, guiro scrapers and other assorted percussion.
