These are field recordings that didn't make it into our final documentary piece, but that we didn't want to go unheard either.
In this 23 minute field recording, largely unedited, William talks to Ashley Soto about the different musical styles of Puerto Rican folk music, plays samples of each, and tells us a little about the history of the jíbaros and their music, all while he puts the finishing touches on a cuatro. Listen to the whole recording, or skip around to just get a taste of the music.
