Reviewed 2008-07-19 
Catchy marimba-based instrumentals. The style of dance is thoughtfully included on the back so you’ll have an idea of tempo. Its slightly kitchy-touristy sound is actually quite charming. Very well played. Check out especially:

1. Happy, sunny. A good introduction to the music.
3. A warm and sweet bolero.
4. Sweetly toe-tapping w/a relaxed, unpretentious sound.
5. A carousel-type waltz.
7. Billed as “blues” actually a foxtrot. Midtempo & kinda dramatic.
9. Upbeat, nicely tripping and bright.
11. Bright, midtempo folk dance.
13. Upbeat corrido, very polka-esque. Happy & fun.
14. Midtempo w/a quirky edge. Almost cinematic.
18. Upbeat and lively w/a sunny day sound.
19. Another carousel waltz. Plinky-good.
