The Afrosound of Colombia Vol. 3 (2xLP)


Double vinyl

Released by Vampisoul Records

One of our favourite series, bringing together funky, often hard-to-find gems of Afro-Colombian goodness. Compiled by DJ Bongohead, this is another staunch selection, with tracks from the 50s through to the 80s by the likes of Wganda Kenya, Afrosound, Peregoyo y su Combo Bacana and Los Corraleros de Majagual. This is an essential look at how Afro-Colombian rhythms and traditions were adopted into Colombian mainstream music through its most prominent decades.

Press notes:

“Third volume in our series of Afro-Latin sounds from the golden period of the seminal Discos Fuentes label in Colombia.

An outstanding selection of 26 hard-to find-tracks, many reissued for the first time, covering a wide array of Afro-rooted genres, with an stronger focus on the music’s folkloric origins than in previous volumes, comprising recordings by the likes of Michi Sarmiento, Wganda Kenya, The Latin Brothers, Los Corraleros De Majagual, Peregoyo…

It includes an extended booklet with notes by compiler Pablo Yglesias aka DJ Bongohead.”
