The difinitive single disc Cumbia colelction available & in
cumbia-pro | 10/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are by far difinitive single disc collections that feature Cumbia's from Columbia from the 1950's, however thsoe are next to impossible to find in the USA, so thsi collection is the best and easiest to locate. If you want to go back and investigate the roots of 50's Cumbia, you'll have to search out bootlegs from Colombia and Mexico. This cd features some original versions of popualr Cumbis's and some are vintagem however there is a variety, and the music is tropical, and great for dancing, and livening up parties. The rhythms and percussions(congas) are irresistable. There is an almost hypnoctic sound to Cumbias, they are very addicting, you will dance when this cd goes in the player. A great cd!"
Clasica Cumbias de Colombia
musica sobroso | de santa ana | 10/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"OK so maybe these are not "clasico" in teh sense of being from the 1950's, but they are classic versions of some good authentic Cumbia de Colombia. This cd is as good as any, if not better. There are no synthesized instruments like many of teh modern Sonideros, these are all real musicians and great percussionists. Everything on the great Discos Fuentes label is generally good, and un-synthesized. These sides are MUY TROPICAL, and very exotic(& sound very 1950's) and are gaurenteed to liven up your next party waether you are Latin or gavacho! In fact the rhytms are Cumbia, but there are more touches of Sun Montuno, Salsa, and other forms of tropical mixed in, for a more varied flavor. Muy sobroso!!!"
