Listen in as Dominican guitarist, vocalist, composer, and producer Yasser Tejeda gives traditional folkloric music a new spin with jazz, rock and Caribbean rhythms in "a frenzied celebration of ancestral union" (Billboard, 2019). His work preserves and celebrates Dominican roots music.
Yasser has released two commercial albums, Kijombo (2019) and Mezclansa (2009), and has also recently released a new acoustic EP, Interior. His debut album Mezclansa was dubbed one of the “100 essential recordings of Dominican music” by the Nation’s Association of Art Writers (Acroarte), and his second album Kijombo received six awards from Dominican Republic's Indie awards 'Premios Indie,' including Best Album.
