A killer collection of champeta work from the Caribbean coast of Colombia – music that still has plenty of local touches, but also shares a lot with African imports of the time – a really unique little hybrid that makes for plenty of heavy rhythms! The sound is quite unique – a slight echo of more familiar Colombian music at points, but often a more full-on approach to rhythm – with plenty of heavy percussion at the bottom, driving Afro rhythms, and some occasional Caribbean touches in terms of the production – which can make things nicely trippy at just the right points! Soundway have done a great job of introducing us to this unique genre – thanks not only to a wicked selection of tunes, but also a full complement of notes and photos, which really open up our understanding of the music. Titles include "Yoro" by Wganda Kenya, "El Scususu" by La Nelda Pina, "Tetero" by Cumbia Moderna De Soledad, "Esclavo Moderno" by Manuel Alvarez Y Sus Sangers, "Bumburumbumbum" by Cassimbas Negras, "Naga Pedale" by Cumbia Siglo XX, "Pim Pom" by Wganda Kenya, "Tetero" by Cumbia Moderna De Soledad, "Palenque Palenque" by Son Palenque, and "Shacalao" by Lisandro Meza & Su Conjunto.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
