Greg Ribot | Hoboken, N.J. United States | 10/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD avoids the formulaic monotony of so much of the pop-Cumbia and Merengue that's cranked out nowadays, with a unique sound that breathes new life into old standards. The instrumentation is not entirely typical, featuring the bandola (a kind of a lute), guitar and some flute rather than the more standard clarinet or accordion. The mix of Cumbia and Merengue makes for a great party-dance tape. At the same time, the high quality of the musicianship, the arrangements , and the clarity of the recording make for a great listening experience. These are obviously excellent musicians who put a lot of thought and love into what they do."
La mejor expresion del sentimiento colombiano!

"Expresa la alegria y expontaneidad del sentir del pueblo Colombiano al igual de su folclor y belleza. Revive el sentimiento y amor por lo nuestro y da una clara imagen de lo bueno y natural que tenemos al exterior."
