Diablos Del Ritmo

 

Africa in America is the focus of Diablos del Ritmo, a generous two-disc set from the dependable Analog Africa label. Founder Samy Ben Redjeb explains in the sleevenotes how he sourced the material, which spans 1960-1985 and covers a bewildering array of tropical styles that have made the cumbia (a Colombian music genre of African origin) such a rich amalgam of influences.
