A Orillas del Magdelena: Coastal Cumbias From Colombia's Discos Fuentes

Incredible sounds from the legendary Discos Fuentes – Colombia's powerhouse of musical magic for the past 50 years – presented here with recordings from the label's early years!

The styles here include a fair bit of cumbia – but always in the earlier, folksier modes that came before the genre got electrified and crossed over bigger at a global level – and other tracks have fast, cyclical rhythms that are in a similar mode, but with much deeper roots overall! Instrumentation includes a lot of great organ, accordion, and reed lines – over percussion that's plenty driving throughout – and titles include Cumbia Campesina by Los Corraleros De Jahagual, Baila Rosita by Los Guacharacos, Conjunto Tipico Vallenato, A Orillas Del Magdalena by Nafer Duran & Su Conjunto, Esperma y Ron by Los Guacharacos, Soledad by Combo Los Galleros, Cumbia En La India by Andres Landero & Su Conjunto, and Cumbia Negra by Carlos Roman & Su Conjunto.
