A stunning collection of rare work from the west coast of Colombia – sounds that are in the deepest Afro-Peruvian tradition, given that a large part of the area's population is of African descent! Much of the music is heavily percussive, but filled with these fantastic instrumental bursts on guitar, xylophone, horns, and other instrumentation – almost a reverse of the mix of Latin influences that peppered 60s and 70s styles in West Africa, finding a new sort of inspiration in Colombia! The set covers a very wide scope of recordings, but really has a strongest focus on tracks from the 70s and 80s – and although we'd heard work by a few of these artists before, most of them are very new to our ears – and make the whole thing a fantastic fresh musical discovery.
