Product Description

Product Description

It's Cumbia time! Born in Colombia, this addictive fusion of Afro-Caribbean and European musical styles is the latest global dance music phenomenon.

Cumbia is the rhythm that can be heard all across Latin America in both its traditional form via vintage recordings from the last century, and in new crossbreeds with hip hop, reggaeton, ragga, house and grunge coming out of Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, LA, Puerto Rico and beyond. Featuring cumbiaton anthems, housed-up bangers, gangsta-style ragga hits and several original stomping classics all selected and blended by hugely respected London DJ Russ Jones (aka 'The Hackney Globetrotter'), 'Arriba La Cumbia!' is the wildly exotic, irresistible, sizzling hot sound of now.

Closely associated with the 'Balkan Beats' movement, through its mixture of traditional global rhythms with fresh contemporary production.

Features an exclusive new, cumbia-influenced track from celebrated UK house music duo Basement Jaxx (XL Recordings)

Vintage Columbian cumbia is represented by original masters including Alberto Pacheco, Los Guacharacos and Lito Barrientos.

Review

(4 stars) A panoramic view of cumbia's guises and disguises...Columbia's most popular musical style...these selections are the cream of the crop. -- Songlines, (Sue Steward), November/December 2008

A fertile swamp of glorious beats...as good an intro as any to the crazy caliente ritmos...coming to a dancefloor near you. -- The Observer Music Monthly, (Peter Culshaw), November 9, 2008

Segues between electronica and fine vintage accordion-backed songs from such classic performers as Alberto Pacheco...it's a great dance album. -- The Guardian, (Robin Denselow), October 31, 2008

Format: Audio CD
Following hot on the heels of Cumbian Dance smashes from Basment Jaxx et al, it didn't take long for savvy world groove DJ Russ Jones to put this together.

Cumbia is a popular Columbian dance style, it's steamy, loping two-note bass lines are a little like merengue and have an infectious dancefloor pull.
Jones brings together some excellent modern joints and mash ups on this collection, Some great tunes on here from Up Bustle And Out, Mo Horizons, Moonrra y su Batallón and more, and he adds a good sprinkling of classic original recordings from the golden age of Cumbia.

Fans of the earlier 50's/60's period should investigate the excellent Cumbia Cumbia series volumes one and two...although the secondhand price on Amazon looks a little inflated at the time of writing.
One for Latin and World music fans who are not afraid of a bit of DJ culture. Tailor made for the dance tent at WOMAD. Recommended.
