'Cumbia fire and Caribbean cool on one evocative mix.' Songlines
This compilation is a snapshot of Colombia's myriad musical jewels, and the theme is Street Party - something that Colombians excel at. No true salsero needs an introduction to the work of Colombia's undisputed 'rumbero maior' Joe Arroyo. Originally one of the three lead singers of Fruko Y Sus Tesos, Barranquilla native Joe went solo in the mid-1980s, recording a series of superb albums that brought other Caribbean and African rhythms – compas, zouk, soca, soukous – into the salsa fold for almost the first time.
Enhanced Added Value: This CD contains a data track that includes music and travel from the Rough Guide books.
