My good friend from Birmingham, Brian Parsons, one of the finest Transnational Roots Djs I know sent me this and man it’s GREAT!

You can grab it from the Canicule Tropicale blog and here’s what they say:

Yes we are back! Now for the first of the ‘Volume 2′ series of the previously posted selections on the blog. We are very proud to present you the sequel to Super Uepa Cumbias Vol.1! Again coming out strong with a selection of DEVASTATING cumbias (and a few pachangas thrown in there!) straight from Canicule Tropicale creator Philippe Noël’s precious record collection. Sorry no tracklist this time. But maybe some of you can already identify some of these, who knows!

Grab Volume 1 too!

Hello everybody! To end this first year on a nice note, I thought about sharing some of my favorite cumbias from my record collection. I really hope you like it! Please share with your friends and anybody who you think like cumbia, as these very special and rare tracks might not be available anywhere else on the web… Really really hope you gonna enjoy this one and please play as loud as your stereo can hold!!
