ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Sexteto Borinquen was led by Tresista Mario Hernandez, one of the leading exponents of the Cuban Tres and Puerto Rican Cuatro (three and four double-stringed folk guitars). Although Mario was Puerto Rican and lived in the Bronx, NYC, the music on this album has a strong Cuban sexteto flavor. On this album the vocals are shared between Mario and Pompo.

Tresista refers to a musician who is proficient in the Cuban Tres guitar. The Cuban Tres and Puerto Rican Cuatro guitars are double stringed giving a sweet and pleasing sound, and Mario Hernandez was a master of both instruments.

Over the years many have paid tribute to the Tres and Cuatro guitar playing of Mario Hernandez and rightly so. His playing style being very Cuban put him in demand for recording sessions for others; his musical style appealing to lovers of Cuban music and later New York salsa music. The Sexteto Boriquen were loved in New York, Puerto Rico and many other countries,

The Cuban Tres and Puerto Rican Cuatro guitars are double stringed giving a sweet and pleasing sound.
