Carlos Rojas | Cincinnati | 12/05/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When the africans beated their drums and the native indigenous tribes added some melodies with their gaitas, a new kind of music was born in the beautiful caribbean coast of Colombia. Strong, pure, deep, poetic, vibrant and magic. This music is done with 3 elements: voices, percussion and gaita (native flute). Toto la momposina is the best and most representative singer of this kind of music, her voice is unique and powerful, and I consider this her best recording. A jewel of real world music."

"Toto la Momposina brings out the real and pure folklore of the north coast of Atlantic & Magdalena Region.
The african influence in the different types of drums will make you travel to remote regions where the night, candles, machete make you move their rithms echoes.
I truly enjoy the creativity of bringing the drums resonances in different stages and clearly differenciate it.
The poetry of the songs words are the small village people tails seating around the campfire enjoying each others companion and adventures of the day or a distant leyend."
Toto is making colombian music getting respected
