El Marinero (Dominican merengue song, MP3)

'El Marinero' (The Sailor) exemplifies the beauty and liveliness of merengue, a type of music that originated in the Dominican Republic. Recorded in 1955, the song features the music of Ricardo Rico, merengue composer and orchestra leader, with his Los Tipicos Dominicanos band and the vocals of Florinda Sanchez. The digitised 78rpm recording is from the Internet Archive, with some remastering by Marine Café Blog to enhance the sound quality. (5.4 MiB, MP3, 3:08 minutes)
