Juan Carlos y Jeana Ureña

Música original de Costa Rica

Juan Carlos Ureña began writing, composing, and performing music in Costa Rica during the 1980s, and was an integral part of the Nueva Canción movement in Central America. He began working in duo with Jeana Paul in 1994, who hails from Texas, Brazil, and Costa Rica.

Together, they create a unique fusion of intricate guitars, mandolin, and piano; Caribbean, Brazilian, and pop rhythms; poetic Spanish lyrics; and beautiful harmonies.
