Sonido Martines’ Top 11 Obscure Psych Cumbia Gems

By | 15 September, 2015

While it is not exactly true to say that these songs are described as “psych cumbia” in Latin America, it’s true that this name has found its place as a way of referring to various different styles of tropical Latin American music. And here it is! This is the point where the Andean guitar got tropicalized and gave birth to a whole new danceable musical universe.

This short selection is devoted to songs that are not particularly well-known from the genre, with the majority from Peru, but also from Ecuador and Mexico.

Los Pakines “Venus”

El Tunchi Loco “Rebajada”

Tony Marín y Los Tierra Roja “Pongo de Manseriche”

Jasehf y Su Grupo “Piscis y Acuario”

Los Scorpios “Si No Quieres Bailar Vuelve a Casa”

Los Atomos de Paramonga “El Trencito”
