First of all, I own over 400 Latin music CDs because I have a true and devoted appreciation to all Latin American countries being hispanic. But I have to say that it's the Colombian music that always has the magic of simultaneously making my feet dance and touch my heart with its superb beat and lyrics. Of course, I have yet to be disappointed with a Putamayo CD but this one hits home. If you want to get a real taste of the different beats that Columbia has to offer - "Vallenato", "cumbia", "porro", "salsa" from TOP artists, you must get this. To top it all off, each of the artists/bands listed has their own collection of incredible hits. Dan Storper (CEO) not only offers historical information about Colombia in the enclosed booklet, but he also includes background stories of each artist. I bought this at full price when living in NY so this is an even better deal. By the way, if you are ever in NY, check out Chibcha - this Columbian night club has lasted for so many years - they always play good oldies and contemporary Colombian as well as other latino music. Don't forget to check out the collections of the artists listed. Enjoy!

The Putumayo label was named after a valley in Colombia where its founder discovered a scenic paradise. The highly informative sleeve notes (in English and Spanish) express sadness that the country has recently been ripped apart by violence and drug-dealing but also underline the hope that comes from the continued attachment of the country's musicians to a sense of beauty. This South American nation is surrounded by three important waterways- the Pacific, the Caribbean and the Amazon and this influences the music. A variety of styles are present here- ranging from Salsa to Colombia's most popular home-grown form 'Cumbia' (which was itself developed from west African music). As usual with Putumayo collections the choice of songs is very good combining the traditional with the contemporary. There are very few weak links on this album and almost all the songs will get you dancing. This is one of the very best collections from one of the leading world music labels. My only regret is that they don't include Colombia's best group: Aterciopelados.

This is probably my favourite Putumayo collection. I have several of them, and have played them all many times, but this one most of all. The music is uplifting, though one cannot help but think of the troubled country from which it comes. This helps you understand the spirit of the people themselves. My favourite track is the very well known Fiesta de Negritos, and the version included here is full of vigour and passion. If this kind of music is new to you then I certainly suggest taking a chance on it. Very highly recommended.

If you are fond of Colombian music you will certainly enjoy this collection which is heavily oriented towards cumbia. Personally I am a lover of vallenato and would have liked to have seen more of that in the collection, but I have no complaints about any of the tracks on this CD. They are all first rate and danceable.
