A contemporary group, but one that draws upon a huge tradition of Afro-Colombian sounds – pulled together by its members through travels that have taken them through all the many different regions of their diverse nation, and served up in a very spare style that mostly just features voice and percussion! Instrumentation includes totuma, guasa, llamador, alegre, and marimbas – and the presentation is wonderfully without cliche – no easy world music cash-in, and instead just a superbly-recorded document of the richly-intertwining cultures that have taken place in the centuries of African influence in Colombia. Titles include "Tierra", "La Sirenita", "El Manguito", "La Plegaria", "Regresa Pues", and "La Juga Del Nazareno".
