various / soundway - Soundway Presents Palenque Palenque: Champeta Criolla & Afro Roots In Colombia 1975-1991
"Boasting 21 tracks from the northern coasts of Colombia, 'Palenque Palenque!' reveals a unique a fascinating story of how Afro Colombian music developed from the 1970s onwards and how the local sound-systems in Cartagena and Barranquilla played such an important role in shaping the sound of Colombian champeta. The album highlights the long relationship that the Caribbean coast of Colombia has with Africa stretching back to the 17th Century. Specifically the rise of the percussion heavy champeta sound, born out of a wave of popularity for psychedelic Afro, Latin & Caribbean music inspired by the DJs of the time." The rhythms here are just deadly, mixing polyrhythmic disco with dubbed out psyche vibes in Son Palenque's 'Palengue Palengue' or irresistibly feverish psyche vibes weaved into sliding syncopations of Abelardo Carbon Y Su Conjunto's 'Quiero a Mi Gente', through to jaw dropping dub disco madness on La Tromba's 'Calaba Calabao' and psychedelic Afro-beat fusions like Wganda Kenya's 'El Lobo'.
