Sacalao (Champe Remix) by Pernett
I haven’t seen anyone who made a remix for abelardo carbono before.. and you need to know..he is one of the pioneers of champeta..
Pernett deserves a place in Colombia’s musical history with no doubt, and to clarify why i want to quote one of the reviews he’s got:
” Pernett is a synonym for party, folklore, cumbia, tambó, gaita, maracas, guache and tradition. In an apparently contradictory manner, he is also a synonym for an advanced vanguard of experimental fusion. Pioneer in the electro cumbé movement, this native to Barranquilla has been traveling around the planet for years with his massive afro, and his revolutionary and innovative ideas”
To show you how impressive and visionary he is..
CHECK THIS PAC MAN CUMBIA..called El guevatronic in a Enjuto Mojamuto’s version
El Guavatronik por Enjuto Mojamuto (!QUE PALABRAS TAN BONICAS!) by Pernett
HIS Videos are sooo DOPE
i want to share with you guys something personal about This next song:
When i did my first album, i had listened pernett’s first EP, and just til i released mine, some time later, i found his music had an impact in the way i had created my own stuff.. i knew i was not alone in the path of exploring and expanding Colombian and Latino music.
Later on, he kept his cumbia roots and positive lyrics, and i went for more global rhythms and a more political/positive kinda lyrics.
Nowadays, i consider Pernett, a visionary, a master, and one of the driving forces of Cumbia sounds to the world.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE OF HIS STUFF!
