Unavailable for 7 years. An amazing journey to the exciting music of Colombia and its unique melting pot of indigenous, African, and European music. Over two and a half hours of funky, hot Afro-influenced tracks from the 60s and 70s golden period of the seminal Discos Fuentes label in Colombia.
This release deals with the unique sounds produced as a result of the inventive mixing of pop and roots that took place in the urban confines of the Discos Fuentes studios in Bogota. The tracks on this compilation were chosen from the vast archives of Discos Fuentes because they are fun, funky, unexpected, crazy, and hot. 'Afrosound' is taken as a general term to denote the funkier side of the label's prolific output in the 60s and 70s, all the tracks all have something to do with African roots or influences, and they mark a period of sonic experimentation, self expression, upheaval, and rebellion, nurtured by Discos Fuentes and its stable of musicians, producers, and engineers.
43 dancefloor hits provide an irresistible mix of genres: Salsa, Cumbia, Boogaloo, Tropical Funk, Chicha. Many songs reissued for the first time.
