Who is Joaquin Mouliert?
Son of Don Julio Mouliert Ocasio, farmer, and Doña Conchita Meléndez, Joaquin decides to follow in his father’s footsteps by becoming a farmer and rancher. He has been named as Farmer of the Year by the Department of Agriculture, on several occasions.
It is not through these recognitions that he is known, but by his performances as a troubadour. It was in his efforts to keep our folklore alive that he has gained recognition. He has been able to perform at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York and is also known as “El Pitirre Fajardeño.”
For over 40 years every 24th of December Fajardo awakens to the rhythms of our “Décima Puertorriqueña” interpreted by troubadours from all over the Island. This entourage is known as “La Parranda Navideña de Joaquín Mouliert” and visits different sectors of Fajardo bringing joy with their singing and celebrating the Spirit of Christmas with our music. Fajardo feels proud of this fine troubadour and “jíbaro puertorriqueño”.
