Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Colombian cumbia is the beloved tropical dance music characterized by rolling drums, maracas and the royally raspy guacharaca scraper. This Rough Guide highlights the best from cumbia's coastal Afro-Caribbean roots through to its entirely modern incarnations. Explore the vintage works of Lucho Bermúdez, Los Corraleros de Majagual through to the urban stylings of El Hijo De La Cumbia and Los Chapillacs.

Customer Review
The beautiful cover art and lengthy liner notes indicate that there is some direction to the piece. The writer of the liner notes obviously knows a very good deal about cumbia in general and great songs in particular. Just about every song in here is a keeper, I especially enjoyed "La Cumbia en Azul" By Jaime Llano Gonzalez. Anyone used to traditional cumbia arrangements will be blown away by hearing his Hammond B3 ordan work. A Wonderful, democratic collection!
