Today’s special about Colombia would not be the same without this
rare album. Pacho Galán was one of the biggest composers of Porro,
Fandango and the inventor of ‘Merecumbé’. Colombian music would
also not have been the same without Pacho Galán.
‘Ay Cosita Linda’ was maybe his biggest hit and the birth of Merecumbé.
He himself was born on october the 4th in Soledad, Atlántico,and
wanted to be a musician since he was a child. Went to conservatoire
and was a professional musician at the age of 15.
The titlesong of this LP was also a great succes in those days.
2 Juan de la Cruz
4 Lindo San Marcos
6 Bombo y Maracas
7 Rosa blanca
9 Me voy con la gaita
10 La pringamosa
11 Los diablitos
12 A sincelejo
Do Not Mistake !
The cover of this LP is just awful !
If you see an album in your secondhand store with a cover like this,
you skip it, but look out.
La Sonora Dinamita is a fantastic band.
This LP starts out with a commercial hit but then it gets more
interesting in my opinion. It’s not a carreeralbum, they’re hard
to find in Europe but it’s a collector that contains some great
songs. ‘Cumbias de Oro’ is it’s title although some tracks have
a certain salsa flavour over them.
All together, a great spin in a cheap coat.
1 A mover la colita
2 Del monton
3 Mi son monteadentro
4 Bongo bongo
5 Murio en su ley
7 Mirala como va
8 Te pille pilla
10 Cosas que suceden
11 Jibarita encantadora
Today’s Sunday Special is about Colombian music.
A country that has brought many interesting styles,
often underestimated abroad.La Sonora de Baru is one of Colombia’s most played Cumbia Bands together with La Sonora Dinamita. Recorded in New York, this is
a fine piece of Cumbia you don’t want to miss.
