If you are a curiousity buyer then you won't be disappointed by this stunning compilation. Cumbia is fast and lively and the opening tracks prepare you for an exciting journey with the fast accordion playing beautifully accompanied by some neat brasswork. 'Cumbia Cienaguera' is a classic song known to all Colombians; there is an eery brilliance to 'La Luna Y El Pescador' (The Moon and the Fisherman) and 'La Banda Borracha' (The Drunken Band) is hilarious and features some impressive sax and trombone. Don't miss this album! Life's too short!
