One of the two compilations that started it all off for me way back in the late 80’s. I still have it on TAPE..lol
This compilation contained material from the Discos Fuentes label, released on Mango records, a subsidiary of Island, and compiled by Jo Shinner in or about 1989/1990.
This compilation included loads of Cumbia and the World Circuit release “Cumbia Cumbia” actually owes a huuuge debt to this compilation. The release was long ago deleted from the Island catalogue as Mango disappeared.
To this very day, it is still one of my all-time favourite Cumbia compilations.
Here’s the opening cut to it…and can you imagine my delight when I first heard this and listened with xcitement as to what was to follow:-)
I know Caballo sneaked this in earlier this week but I found it first ..lol…and so it ‘s getting another look-in!
HIPI DUKI AND DANY F
The seasoned old man (Hipi..lol) teams up with a youngster to teach him a couple of new things!
Love it..stream only but I’m sure it will come as free soon.
CHICO YE & NATALIE STORM
Another stream only but this is just such a fabulous Cumbia Dancehall number that I had to include it.
One of my all time favourite Cumbia bands now and I only discovered them recently. Look back to the original feature HERE!
