Frente Cumbiero - Pitchito - out on Names You Can Trust

Frente Cumbiero - Pitchito
(7"/Download) Names You Can Trust NYCT 7005, 2010-10-26

Straight out of Bogota Colombia, Frente Cumbiero make their debut vinyl release with two thumping original Cumbias that are sure to set dance floors on fire. Pitchito is an uptempo scorcher with a healthy dose of sparkling synth work and rattling percussion, finding its groove somewhere between Lonnie Liston Smith and golden era-Fuentes. Ananas Tornillo proves again why Frente Cumbiero is on the forefront of the Nueva Cumbia movement in Colombia, pairing an intoxicating keyboard hook with a biting bass line, freshly squeezed and served along the Andean Countryside. Frente Cumbiero explores the sound and identity that Cumbia represents in Latin America. Having participated in Cumbia related projects since 1999 in Colombia, Mexico, England, France and Holland (from roots to experimental), the collective has collaborated with key players in the burgeoning international movement, building bridges all the way from New York to Buenos Aires. With an ever-expanding interest in its sound, Frente Cumbiero remains a powerful link between Colombian roots music and the Nueva Cumbia generation.
