*“Mijo de la Palma’s shows should take place at a public souk, a rural
market, a beach campfire, in one of those places where everyone of us can
find shelter as long as we commit to strip ourselves off prejudices”.
*

MIJO DE LA PALMA
FT. Mario Schambon

Born out of the eclectic musical scene in the western side of Puerto Rico,
Mijo de la Palma’s sound is an unfolding of handcrafted jíbaro music and
modern acoustic rhythms. The earthy, melancholic and intimate lament of the
jíbaro intersects with upbeat and catchy tunes of today’s singer-songwriter
and flamenco music resulting in their trademark Fusion Jíbara. Fusión
Jíbara is not only a creative blend of poetry and musical textures that
redefines the sounds of contemporary Puerto Rican music, it also provides
the new generations with music intimately linked to a strong Puerto Rican
identity in times of severe political turmoil in the island.

*“I finally got to see Mijo de la Palma. They pull you by the feet and drag
you to a hill that only they know. Before the first minor chord, they pull
off your shoes and take you by the hand. Once they finish, they leave you
barefoot and in search for your way back.
*
Yoshua Cortes, Teatro Beckett, Río Piedras
