The reasons of releasing this FREE EP are quite simple:
To let people outside Colombia, that this Master is still Alive and very Active, to tell promoters, agents and labels around the globle he has 33 unreleased songs, ready to be signed.
But specially to demonstrate that eventhough Digital cumbia is getting massive attention around the globe, These guys, the Masters, the creators, are dying.
These guys deserve to be seen, paid and shared by new generation while they are still alive.
Big thanks to Him, and his Producer Leon Murcia for being generous and open to new ideas and ways of promotion. ( bottom of the page there is producer’s contact email, in case you want to know more about the unreleased songs and/or live performances)
