Jibaro Exploration

Submitted by Ashley N. Soto on Thursday, 9/24/2009, at 10:29 PM

Tom and I are going into the Puerto Rican community of the Pioneer Valley to explore the jibaro music that thrives in the area.  The family who owns and operates Santiago's Family Restaurant in Westfield, MA also has a family jibaro-esque band "Grupo Canela" that plays there every Friday and Saturday.  Tomorrow, Tom and I will be going to scope out the venue.
