I found a little Colombian music shop tucked away in the depths of South London. Naturally they sell a lot of cumbia. I asked for stuff from the Northern Caribbean coast of Colombia. They said "aahh Tropicales" and pulled out a load of cds with half-naked birds on the covers. Felt like I was buying some dirty mags or something.
Anyway, the music is excellent, lots of accordions and general sunny vibes for this season.
One of the tracks is an exception, from the city of Cali in middle of Colombia.
Less accordions, more of a dirty guitar funk jam, unlike most cumbias i've heard. Afrosound were one of first cumbia groups to mix trippy rock into their sound. Its off the Disco Fuentes label where you can buy lots more cumbia.
Afrosound - Caliventura
Here's the video featuring more ladies and something that looks like a giant vat of porridge that ends up as bread. What is that stuff ?
