www.multikulti.com:
Najnowsza płyta z cenionej brytyjskiej wytwórni World Music Network ‘The Rough Guide To Colombian Street Party’ to piąta płyta z cyklu ‘The Rough Guide To Street Party’. W 2008 roku ukazały się cztery pierwsze: The Rough Guide to Cuban Street Party [RGNET1199], The Rough Guide to Brazilian Street Party [RGNET1206], The Rough Guide To African Street Party [RGNET1201], The Rough Guide To Latin Street Party [RGNET1212].
Chyba trudno sobie wyobrazić lepszy czas na premierę, mamy w końcu czas szalonego karnawału, a kto potrafi się lepiej bawić jak nie mieszkańcy Ameryki Łacińskiej?
Choć najbardziej znaną Kolumbijką pozostaje obecnie Shakira trzeba wiedzieć, że kraj ten skrywa dużo większe muzyczne bogactwo.
Kolumbia to dość szczególne miejsce na mapie Ameryki Łacińskiej, kultura tego kraju została ukształtowana w równym stopniu przez wpływy europejskie, afrykańskie, co pochodzące z kultury metyskiej i Indian Południowej Ameryki.
Ta wyjątkowość daje wybuchowy efekt muzyczny, afrykański puls, europejska elegancja, metyski temperament plus instrumentalne inkrustacje wprost z muzyki Indian Południowej Ameryki zaspokoją najbardziej wyszukane oczekiwania fanów world music nie stroniących od tanecznych zabaw.

Editor's info:
Colombia, Latin America's only country with both Pacific and Atlantic coastlines, boasts vibrant traditional and contemporary music scenes, whether mestizo, African, European or Indian. Colombians also know how to party! The Rough Guide To Colombian Street Party is a snapshot of the parties, mixing the obscure with the obvious, the newest with the oldest, from ancient Indian flute music to the latest reggaeton. Dance like there's no manana!
This compilation is a snapshot of Colombia's myriad musical jewels, and the theme is Street Party - something that Colombians excel at. No true salsero needs an introduction to the work of Colombia's undisputed 'rumbero maior' Joe Arroyo. Originally one of the three lead singers of Fruko Y Sus Tesos, Barranquilla native Joe went solo in the mid-1980s, recording a series of superb albums that brought other Caribbean and African rhythms – compas, zouk, soca, soukous – into the salsa fold for almost the first time. Champeta is the music that grew up in the 1980s on the Atlantic coast from a mixture of traditional Afro-Colombian music and the highlife, afrobeat, soukous, soca, zouk and reggae LPs that sailors would trade in the street-markets of Barranquilla and Cartagena. A perfect addition to any Colombian Street party is the manically-energetic, reverb-packed soukous-champeta from Makina Del Caribe, one of the genre's longest-serving groups, whose light-hearted, pop-influenced approach to champeta has revealed the style to many Colombians who would not normally dream of listening to such 'rough' music. Colombiafrica's Voodoo Love Inna Champeta Land took some four years in the making, but champeta has never before been executed so perfectly as in this project, involving as it does some of the original Afro-Parisian session-players who were champeta's inspiration in the first place.
'El Mecanico' was a big dancefloor hit for many of the great porro and cumbia big-bands of the 1950s and 1960s, and Electro-cumbieros Grupo Retrovisor - a joint project based in Bogotá and Zurich - roll together a medley of similar classic tunes in a modern dancefloor style as a homage to the old-time cumbiamba parties. La Contundencia specialise in chirimía, the 'national' music of the Pacific coast, where cumbia isn't played at all. Contundencia's rhythmic range is astonishing: aguabajo, bambuzu, polka, mazurka, jota, just for starters. Currently spearheading an old-school salsa movement in Bogotá, LA-33 are a sensational high-energy salsa dura band consisting entirely of players under the age of 30, with a fresh, rock- and punk-inspired energy to their music. LA-33 have just completed a sell-out, 50-date tour of Europe and Japan. Also Bogotá-based, Mojarra Electrica fuse traditional bullerengue, currulao and chirimía with funk, jazz, reggae, timba and soukous, as well as the occasional heavy-metal guitar lick. 2003s album La Calle 19 featured on several 'Best Of…' lists (including the influential Rolling Stone (En Espagnol) magazine).
Already acknowledged as one of the most exciting developments on the Colombian music scene, the brilliant hip-hop threesome ChocQuibTown fuse their tongue-twisting breakbeat style with the traditional instrumentation of their forefathers to produce a sort of chocoano parallel to the Mexi-Cali 'Brown-&-Proud' Xikano movement. Colombia's most influential ska-rock band, Doctor Krapula started in 1998, and a combination of hard work, talent, fresh influences and undoubted live-show charisma have led to rocketing record sales and awards (including the coveted MTV Latinos 2006 Best New Alternative Artist Award).

Good man, compiler John Armstrong, this is exactly how a party album from a respected world music label should be handled. The easy thing to do would have been to turn it into an all-cumbia compilation, or wall-to-wall it with Spanish-language dance-pop. Armstrong’s fluff-free mix starts with flutey, folky gaita from Sixto Silgado and his Gaiteros, then takes off into an amazing medley of different styles, merengue, hip hop, cumbia, nu-salsa, rock, dance, champeta, not even rejecting Ricky Martin when one of the bands grabs the olé olé olé chorus from “La Copa de la Vida” and instrumentals it. The straight Rough Guide albums open countries out in front of us like degustation menus. So does this one, but it keeps up a party tempo while it does it.
