"THANKS GOD WE HAVE SOMEONE THAT SAVES THE MUSIC OF OUR GRANDPARENTS AND PUTS IT IN A FORMAT THAT ALL CAN ENJOY, INCLUDING THE NEW GENERATIONS. COLOMBIAN MUSIC IS RICH AND COMPLEX AND IT WAS GETTING LOST AMONGST THE MORE COMMERCIAL SALSA AND MERENGUE. THIS IS A KIND OF MUSIC YOU ONLY USUALLY LISTEN TO IN THE "BUSETAS" OF THE COLOMBIAN TOWNS. THIS IS PURE COLOMBIA."

"The rhythmically impaired Ivan, an unsuccessful bodybuilder turned "singer," is known as the "Colombian Elvis" and is the "author" of such lyrical gems as "I'm Going to Fusagasuga," with the following loose translation:I'M GOING TO FUSAGASUGA (presumably copyright by "Ivan", 1996)I'm going to Fusagasuga, I'm going to Fusagasuga, hey! I'm going to Fusagasuga, 'Cause that's where my girlfriend lives. Yeah!It is presumed that he will get to Fusagasuga, or wherever, as soon as he saves enough money for the bus fare... Hey, whatever makes the ladies sweat on the dance floor..."
