Vallenatos GOGO! Very Be Careful!

phpbWZRNn

No thats not a bad spelling thang in the title of this post. It’s the name of one of the nicest Vallenato bands in the US right now. VERY BE CAREFUL! – Very Be Careful is a homegrown L.A. band that plays Colombian vallenato music, a traditional cumbia sound that centers around the accordion, backed with percussion and bass. Members include: Ricardo “Ricky G” Guzman on accordion and vocals, Arturo “Brickems” Guzman on bass, Craig “Peabody” Martin on guacharaca, Dante “The Rip” Ruiz on campana, and Richard “Mil Caras” Panta on caja vallenata.

Why this, why now? I can almost hear you think? Well, the weather is super nice out today and I’ve been blasting their albums all morning. I thought, why not give these guys some extra shine right now!  with recent write ups on MUDD UP and XLR8R, It’s not hard to imagine them becoming a household name soon. As one critic said referring to the Central American parranda style of VBC: “like it or not, punker or sonidero, new-ager or new-waver, b-boy or cowboy, sober, drunk, few can elude the rump rousing radar of a VBC parranda”…
