Editorial Reviews

Diablos Del Ritmo is a rich and historic collection Afro-Colombian music, and a testament to the consistently excellent work of Analog Africa. It is a journey through 25 years of an explosive music scene, and one that perfectly illustrates how Africa's cu

First disc is Afrobeat, Palenque sounds, Champeta & Caribbean funk. Second disc is Puya, Porro, Gaita, Cumbiamba, Mapale', Chande' & Descarga. If that sounds confusing, the music is anything but, your hips will know what to do. Excellent compilation of some long lost Colombian treasures. Analog Africa is at the forefront of this type of archival collection, their presentation is first rate although the white on black micro font text is a tough read. A gem on all other counts.

An amazing overview of Colombian club music spanning nearly 3 decades. The extremely difficult-to-read liner notes (dark green type against a brown background) tell a fascinating quasi-anthropological tale of a producer trying to track down these songs in a country and culture where the musicians and singers who made the records were far less important than the DJs who played them in clubs.

Colombian clubs in the 60s and 70s liked to play "exclusives," records you couldn't hear anywhere else. As such, when a DJ found a particularly hip track, he might rip off the label or anything that might identify who the artist was, what label it was on, the name of the song, anything. Tracking these songs down was akin to performing an archaeological dig. But the results are well worth the effort. Track after track of insane, deliriously wild dance music, with amazing percussion, singers who sometimes sound as if they've just escaped from an asylum, and wicked hot guitar players. A wonderful document of an almost totally undocumented genre.

The one reviewer who mentioned the "confusing" number of music categories featured on this CD (Afrobeat, Puya, Cumaiamba, Terapia, Mapale, Porro, Gaita, Chande, Descarga) is right: don't worry about the dizzying variety of classifications, just enjoy the music! As the subtitle of this set proclaims, this is indeed a "Colombian Melting Pot" of limb-waving, booty-shaking tunes. Joyful rhythms abound!

With all this mention of musical categories, including Caribeean Funk and comparisons to Afro-Beat, what these styles of Colombian music remind me most of is Cuban music from the same era, basically the 1960s through the early 80s. But no matter what you want to label this music, it's just fun, intoxicating stuff. Fans of anything from Cuban Son stylings to 70s Afrobeat rhythms should really dig this compilation.

This 2-CD set was released by Analog Africa, and if you are familiar with the other compilations that they have put out, you know that you are getting high quality packaging. This CD is encased in a sturdy hardcover gatefold sleeve, containing a deluxe 60-page booklet, packed with details about the songs and the various Colombian music styles. An excellent reissue.

I was not paying too much attention when I first slipped this disc into the cd player,,,and was very happy with the range of music presented. There is plenty to keep one entertained and the feet tapping. When the CD ended, I popped it back into the booklet/package....congratulated myself on a good choice....and found another CD !
Double pleasure. So, apart from being very good music, there is enough to keep you in the groove for a few hours
