Madelina y Los Carpinteros is comprised of Buena Trova Social Club’s Madelina Zayas and Brandon Vance and former Grupo Raiz members Fernando Feña Torres and Dennis Schmidt. The group embodies folk roots with enriched lyricism in the tradition of Nueva Trova and Nueva Canción, movements that flourished out of the liberation struggles of Latin America. Besides their original compositions, Madelina y Los Carpinteros performs compositions by Osvaldo Torres, Simón Díaz, Rafael Manríquez, Roy Brown, Juan Antonio Corretjer, Rafael Hernández, Fernando Solanas, Roberto Goyeneche, and others.
