    What do you get when a telenovela (Latino soap opera) star blends old-school vallenato and other traditional Colombian music with a little pop and some edgy rock & roll? A vibrant, earthy music that makes the heart warm with gladness and the impossibility of remaining seated. Sung like little narratives, these are image-rich songs of love, passion, celebration, and a staying affection for one's land of origin.
    The title track praises the natural beauties of Vives' rural home to the welcome sounds of his usual accordion player, Egidio Cuadrado. "Fruta Fresca" recalls the urgent passion of his radio hit "Rosa," with fierce, fluid guitar work contrasted with Mayte Montero's airy fluting. Echoing "La Tierra Del Olvido," "La Mona" is an easy favorite. The track is full of sun and sand, with an Afro-Colombian-style chorus and percussion and Vives sounding eager to extol. Whereas many of his peers trumpet a brand of romanticism that's gaudy and overblown, Vives is rustic and sweet. And like many pop or rock recordings, this music must be played loud to truly reveal its molten core.
