MIX /// Tropical Roundtrip Selection (from Colombia to Africa)

(Muzzicaltrips TRT019).

A real tropical roundrip, beginning in colombia with classy 60s cumbia, guiro y guaracha, merecumbe, maracumba, currulao, afrocolombian...
A selection warmly advised to people still convinced that all latin music is more or less salsa... Actually we begin with few examples of the countless styles having emerged in Colombian regions, as merecumbe, being a blend of merengue+cumbia initially popularized in the 50s by Pacho Galan, and here played by Lucho Bermudez.

So we'll land in colombian caribbean shore, fond of 80s soukous style productions (with frenzy guitars), which naturally leads us to Africa. So second part of the selection will brings us to Angola, Cabo Verde, Kenya, Tanzania, and of course, a gwoka or a highlife tracks will bring some fresh vibe in this colourful journey. A selection of rare tropical dancefloor friendly tracks, realised for Chile con Mix, apetizer for the "La Revancha" sound system party. Enjoy.
