Hello and Welcome – This is Andrés Digital original Cumbia Round Up Round 26.
I was a lil bit confused by this article in Rolling Stone Latin Edition. Dont get me wrong, the article is ok, but…
…in Europe is the Eurocumbia Blog ??
Where is Generation Bass, Canalh or Tropical Bass…doing hard work for years … Where are all the crews Folcore, Caballito, Mama Cumbia, Movimientos, Copia Doble., Sounds and Colors…running hot Clubnights…Lables like Chusma and Cabeza spreading the word … (and shure I’ve missed lots of Activists !!)
So listen – Cumbia is Global Now !!

Cumbia No 4 – Ritmo Salvaje – Panama Cardoon
The story of Carnibal Records – Born unexpected, in a night with full moon, under a strange sign. A dancing Creole mother and a Sakalava father with big ears gave life to a funny pair of twins, between some palmtrees and a gramophone… The parents called the girl Kick and the boy Snare. Their first word was: ”beat”. And their first wonder: “Mama what is head-nodding?”
So Palov & Panama Cardoon from Athens (Greece) running Carnibal and this is a beautifull Remix of Cumbia Classic Ritmo Salvaje.
Cumbia No 5 – Orquesta Marimba Gallito – Ritmo y Palmeras (Burundanga remix)
Check out DJ JackPosada from Melbourne (Australia) for danceable club music or check out “boor-oon-DAN-ga” for more raw and tribal-ish beats, inspired on all sorts of ethnic celebrations. So this is another Classic Cumbia Cut well remixed.
Okay, Round 26 done – back to my Mixing Desk with some Smoke and Tea with Rum. Its getting cold here in Germany, even if the sun shines. Remember this beautifull Book bout Colombia – Check and if you want a Cumbia Shirt try this or this.
Cumbia Activistas United !! Peace and out – Andrés Digital
