Ramito – Amor y Patria, Ansonia 1980

From Puerto Rico we have an album by the great ‘Ramito’.
His full name is Morales Ramos and he was one of the last to bring
a simple string-based Jibaro sound. His love for Puerto Rico, his ‘patria’,
( motherland ) is a favourite theme on practically all his albums.
