A good introduction to the history and range of psychedelic cumbia. I particularly like the early selections which are closer to cumbia roots, but even the more disco- and experimental sound-oriented cuts found later on the CD are interesting. This isn't among my favorite CDs from Rough Guides, but it's still enjoyable--especially if you like cumbia.
Track 14 is amazing! If you listen to mento, klezmer, big band, ranchero, you will enjoy cumbia. The Rough Guide series is outstanding. Highly recommend almost anything in this series. Valved trombone, clarinet, big bass drum, and fuzz guitar! All here for your consumption. Good luck not dancing.
