Top Customer Reviews
The music is kind of old-fashioned - in a good way. No synthesizers, and it is not simply Rock in Spanish. Lots of big bands, horns, accordions, flutes, and a whole world of percussion.
If you live in a city that has a large number of Colombians, Mexicanos, etc, you may be able to find cumbia collections covering similar ground behind the counter at groceries, or at shops that sell music (often with cell phones / services). A label to look for is Discos Fuentes, because they bought up the rights to most of the songs from the Golden Age of Cumbia (which this CD also represents).
On the down side, there are only 12 tracks. Many Cumbia collections (the ones published by Discos Fuente, for example) have up to 20.

This is one of the best collections of Cumbia that I have heard. GET IT if you can find it. Every tune a great one.Published 12 months ago by Mr. Baker
This is a good CD if you are looking for commercial Cumbia. The tunes are catchy, fun for dancing, and, as pointed out below, will bring back memories. Read morePublished on July 23, 2007 by sergiobklyn
I love the tunes, but this was kinda short. The total was well under an hour.Published on September 14, 1999 by firstname.lastname@example.org
