This, I liberated straight from our homie, SOUNDGOODS, word for word, track for track, fullstop to fullstop…. but the pic is mine..(ok, Coppola’s)…lol
Plus Caballo is gonna gatecrash my party further below, with full welcome, cause man he understands Colombian music much better than I ever could.
He’s gonna re-post that “INFAMOUS CUMBIANIZED” Fela Kuti cover of “Shakara” which I posted last year and that post was tweeted by none other than RIVA STARR & SAMIM!!!
Some of you have been on my case about this track and requesting it again because the previous link is broken. Broken cause we changed servers and I couldn’t be arsed to re-up it..lol. But it’s here again, better late than never.
Plus he’s gonna dig deeper into the “MEZA” psyche showcasing more of this man’s revolutionary take on Cumbia music!
Who knows, Michael Stipe from R.E.M. might just end up tweeting this one…lol…:-)
OVER TO SOUNDGOODS:
Lisandro Meza is one of Colombia’s most recognized Cumbia artists and played an important role in the evolution of Cumbia. He plays accordion, sings, and composes and is a master of vallenato sabanero, an accordion-driven style of music that originated in Mexico. He is one of the founding members of one of Colombia’s most popular bands in the 1960s, Los Corraleros De Majagual, but later focused on his solo career.
Here are some of his songs:
