Soundway Records delves deep into the great history Colombian cumbia and porro – beautifully putting together an expansive set that traces the evolution of the sounds throughout 3 decades – and keeping it coming feverishly and furiously well paced the whole way through! They do a terrific job of making this set reverent of the history – it was very well researched by Will "Quantic" Holland – with one half featuring earlier Columbian cumbia and one half of the evolving sounds and instrumentation that came into play over the years. The sound is beautiful, even on the earliest recordings, and it's heated, intensely rhythmic all the way. Holland and Soundway's Miles Cleret here deliver as exciting and informative a set of benchmark cumbia as we could have hoped for! Vol 1 of the vinyl features original 78s – with 29 titles that include "Judity" by Lucho Perez, "San Jacinto" by Anibal Velasquez, "Samaria" by Los Alegres Del Valle, "Me Quedo Con El Viejo" by Cresencio Salcedo, "Dulce Lamento" by Nacho Paredes, "Sangre Goajira" by Los Indigenas, and "La Muerte" by Tono Fernandez. (180 gram vinyl, limited edition of 1500 copies – with download code!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
