AllMusic Review by

The only previous album of the music of Aruba, Bonaire, and CuraƧao is long gone. Yet small though these islands are, they're musically remarkable: both because they've preserved more purely African styles and instruments than any other area, and because of the richness of the other influences on them: not only Dutch, but Venezuelan and Anglo-American. And here it is, from accordion- and guitar-led "tipiko" dance groups to signal-conches.
