5.0 out of 5 stars Raw Roots Music from Colombia June 6, 2012
By DJan
Format:Audio CD
Of all the myriad styles Latin America has to offer, Colombia's cumbia is among the most addictive. Born in colonial times on its Caribbean coast with an African heartbeat, cumbia moved into the cities, acquired modern instrumentation and orchestration, took over the dancehalls, and became part of the national identity of Colombia. The simple, almost reggae-style beat has carried cumbia well beyond national borders and audiences. Among those who caught the cumbia addiction has been UK-born Will Holland, who moved to Colombia, producing a number of fine and funky Colombia-saturated tracks under his Quantic nom-de-disco. In this superb two-disc Soundway release, the fruit of five years of detective work, Holland has compiled from long-lost 78rpm shellac and vinyl 55 tracks of raw roots music from Colombia. The excellent liner notes chronicle his hunt and the music, old as it may be, is as exciting, propulsive, and dementedly danceable as it must have felt when these tracks were first released. Disk 1 covers the earliest roots, while Disk 2 moves into the later music of city bands and better-known stars such as Anibal Velasquez. Both disks are essential and the sound quality, given its provenance, is amazingly high. Soundway and Quantic have scored a winner here with one of the best releases of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars like field hollers with a groovy back beat August 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Raw, primal sounds from a well spring of numerous latin american sub genres. Acturately likened to a good cross section of delta blues, as so much of north american forms can trace their roots to that well spring. Delta blues was never so danceable, though. Will Holland has really immersed himself in this, and he should be commended for the results, an outstanding collection. You get the feeling of real pedigree with these tracks, like this is the genuine article. Liner notes give a nice synopsis of the development of this music but a track by track commentary is missed. The Anibal Velasquez collection on Analog Africa is another excellent compilation of one of the key participants featured here, his two tracks carefully chosen to avoid duplicating any of the tracks on that compilation. A feast of Colombian delights.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good May 16, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great liner notes, packaging, and fun, raw, accordion and percussion driven cumbia.The real deal. Get it. I think the modern cumbia stuff gives the genre a bad name.This is the genuine article. Don't be surprised if you start hearing a lot more accordion in the next few years. What buena vista social club was to son and salsa, this represents the golden age of cumbia.
