Sones Jarochos. Artist on label is incorrectly stated as “Dueto Hermanas Huesca” when it should read “Dueto Hermanos Huesca”.
Agustin, thank you for clarifying!
I first heard this recording on a radio show in the 1980's, from Zac Salem's collection.
Thanks for your message. This is one of my favorite versions as well. The harp is amazing.
I am pretty sure, however, that the label has made a mistake in the credits. This is a three-record set, and if you look at the actual label images, you see that they list the artists both ways, as Hermanas Huesca and Hermanos Huesca. I checked the biography of the Huesca family, and confirmed that they started performing as a trio of young boys called TRIO HERMANOS HUESCA, composed of Andrés, 11, on harp, Juan, 9, on guitar, and Víctor, 7, on jarana. Later, the Dueto Hermanos Huesca was composed of Andres and Victor, who was also a composer.
Thanks so much for you interest in our music collection.
