Andrés Digital Monthly Cumbia Round Up Episode No 128

Posted On By Andrés

Here comes Andrés Digitals original Cumbia Round Up No.128. Fishing for Nu Cumbia pearls since a long time.
We are really sad to hear the news about the death of Lee Scratch Perry, inventor of Bob Marley, creator of the Dub, lyrical Master from another space. The man was 85 years old and music would sound different today without his distribution. Rest in peace!
But back to the Cumbia, run the trak selectah!

Rave culture never hit Colombia in the 90s – an internal civil war and a music industry fixated on blandness and payola made sure of that – but if it had then Jaguar would have been one of its leading lights. On their debut album this Colombian duo excavate the sound of their country’s dance floors, uniting the classy, brassy sounds of cumbia, porro and salsa with the earthier DIY vibrations coming from Afro-Colombian street parties on the coast, melodies and guitar lines learnt from imported African vinyl filtered through drum machines and hand-painted picó sound systems with the bass so high it threatens to knock you over.
