While not as famous worldwide as merengue de orquesta--or big band merengue--merengue tipico is its fiery progenitor and country cousin, a hotstepping, accordion-fueled noise from the mountainous Cibao region of the Dominician Republic. La India Canela, the tipico's ambassador and accordion goddess, simply calls it "country" music, and in the Dominician Republic that means layered percussive patterns and lightning-fast sax and accordion improvisations. With a cast of merengue tipico all-stars including Rodolfa Oscar de la Rosa Arias and Ramon Eladio Jimenez on tambora and guira respectively, Canela, herself a pioneering female bandleader, rips through a set of her own compositions and genre staples.
