Afrobeat, puya, cumbiamba, terapia, mapale, and caribbean funk, made by the originators and brought by Analog Africa.
I truly am convinced that this is the perfect compilation for those who want to know who the key players in the cumbia and tropical scene were.
The compilation shows an impressive display of the musical diaspora that Colombia was producing!
Calixto Ochoa, a founder member of Corraleros del Majagual, appears in this compilation with his side project Los Papaupas!

Cuban Music obviously had a great impact in the North Coast of Colombia, mainly because there was a very vivid exchange in terms of music those days, everyone was in love with son montuno, and Sexteto Manaure, being mainly “campesinos” felt guajiro music as their own!!
Carbono alongside Noel Petro, were the guys who created the terapia criolla sound, which later developed in the original champeta soukous, very known via Palenque Records..
Now this stream doesnt belong to the compilation, but still it is a magnificent track!
