June 28, 2009 at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, DC. Lidia María Hernández López is La India Canela, a renowned female accordionist of merengue típico. Accompanied by tambora (drum), güira (metal rasp), congas, alto saxophone, and electric bass, Hernández adds her own spice to the national music of the Dominican Republic. Rooted in the mountainous Cibao region, the merengue típico's driving dance beat, aggressive improvisations, and down-home lyrics make it an irresistible Caribbean original.
