A fascinating 16 track collection of dance music that creates a panorama of Puerto Rican musical life in Hawai'i and bears a striking resemblance to Tex-Mex conjunto music. Artists include Charles Figueroa, Virginia Rodrigues, Glenn Ferreira, and others.

"…[A] superb reminder that some of our best music can come from some of our smallest ethnic communities." — The Music Independent
