Soundway set sail for the Colombian coastal town of Cartagena for their first selection of 2011. Sourced from a period when musicians effortlessly combined the swing of cumbia with the driving bass of salsa, Cartagena un-wraps a period of musical history seldom heard beyond the tropical coast of South America. Compiled by Roberto Gyemant with the help of Colombian resident Will ‘Quantic’ Holland and Miles Cleret, Cartagena! focuses on the extraordinary life and career of Curro Fuentes, the youngest brother of the family responsible for the Disco Fuentes label. Cartagena! explores a changing era for Colombian music, when new styles like porro, fandango, cumbia mixed with descargas and salsa cementing Colombia’s reputation as a formidable dance music hotspot in Latin America. Key Selling Points: - Features 19 tracks of which none have been released on CD out of South America. - Compiled by Roberto Gyemant, Quantic & Miles Cleret.
