Remolino De Oro: Coastal Cumbias From Colombia’s Discos Fuentes 1961-1973

DS035
Release Notes
  • Housed in a ‘tip-on’ jacket

A follow up to A Orillas del Magdalena, twelve more cumbias from Colombia’s most prolific label, Discos Fuentes. Hailing, by all accounts, from the Northern coast of Colombia, Cumbia is the offspring of the musical melding of three cultures–the Indigenous, Spanish and African. Shaped by bright cymbals, an insistent bass line, eclectic percussion and brilliant accordion playing, these Discos Fuentes recordings remain raw, loose and unpolished. From dance floor hit to nostalgic ode–they come straight from the heart.
