Synopsis

Album Description
Return on Wings of Pleasure is a snapshot of popular musical tastes among Puerto Rico's rural grassroots jíbaro population interpreted through the country's "national" musical instrument -- the cuatro. Cuatro master Pedro Padilla's 40 years of performing shine through in a recording that reflects the historical and experiential depth of a musician rooted squarely in flow of jibaro musical life. The Mexican cancion ranchera and Dominican merengue imported from abroad and pieces such as the romantic bolero and pasodoble ushered into the cuatro's repertoire in the 1930s and 1940s.
