Champeta Update

php6MTE3G

Yeah!! It’s been a while since we posted champeta!!! The genre is expanding..and unfortunately polarizing into old school vs electro champeta VS COMMERCIAL champeta..

And perhaps many of you do not know or do not remember too much about the genre..

so i will post Few songs and talk about Noel Petro n Champeta!! PLUS the first Champeta from Bomba Estereo’s liliana.. before joining B.E.!!

As i said before it is polarizing..specially in Cartagena and San Andres Island..BUT it is expanding at KING KONG speed all over the globe!!

Although many of the new champeteros DO respect a lot of the traditional patterns, it is still a virgin territory!!

Perhaps two of the biggest names of electro champeta are miami-based kinky electric noise, and Qurrambeat (Russia based?) who still push the genre into a different direction..

Also we can add BIG NAMES who mix both styles and are well received by E-Champeteros and Traditional:

La Makina de Karibe and Cero 39

LA MAKINA DEL KARIBE!!

The intro is sooooooooooo wicked!!! pure latino soccer flavor!!!!

    Thanks for posting champeta! I’m just wondering what makes champeta… maybe I’m just ignorant but that last track sounds more like dembow to me?

    Bro & Readers..here it is a post GB did a while ago about champeta in where i (caballo) wrote about the genre and you can find pretty much part of the roots and influences of the traditional champeta

    That’s dope! But I’m just saying that Musica Pesada track doesn’t sound like traditional champeta at all.

    perhaps.. although mr gomes en bombay.. referred to Musica pesada..as “nuestra champeta” whenever they played live.. and the label itself tagged the tune as a champeta, but i see where are u going..and for sure..it has more elements from rock and just a dembow beat..which makes this song closer to bomba estereo than to el afinadito… LOL
