Diablos del Ritmo

Diablos Del Ritmo is a really fantastic exploration of a corner of the world (and of music) that I didn't know existed...the afro-beat scene in Baranquilla, Columbia in, roughly, the second half of the 20th century. It's two discs, one very afro, the other more permeated by more indigenous, Latin forms like Cumbia, and all quite good. Blurt has turned my album review into a feature of sorts, so you can read about it in more detail here.

Or just have a listen.
