Cumbia Cumbia Cumbia…yup, another round of “La Cumbia”….this time we travel to the Colombia/Panama regions of the past. This mix is pretty amazing plus it’s guaranteed to get the fiesta poppin (rooster dances and all). Careful….it’s infectious. Unfortunately there is NO TRACKLIST, but here’s what was written on the back of the CD:
All over the north of Colombia, from the banks of the river Magdalena to the Plaza Majagual of Sincelejo from the dust beaten tracks of San Jacinto and in the Santos Province of Panama, “La Cumbia” can be found. Its origins are often disputed but its melodies, bellowed from the depths of an accordion or sounding from the bell of a bombardino can rarely be ignored. The music of Panama and Colombia both share a wonderful lyrical quality of storytelling and vary rhythmically in a complexity only comparable with that of African polyrhythm.
