Velasquez, Anibal Y Su Conjunto – “Mambo Loco” – [Analog Africa]
Anibal Velasquez pioneered the use of the accordion in Colombian music – elevating it from Campesino (farmer) music. These recordings from 1962 to 1978 spread in popularity, possibly due to their popularity in coastal cities such as Barranquilla and Cartagena. Velasquez combined styles such as Cumbia, Merecumbe, and Cuban rhythms in a new way. Leave it to Samy Ben Redjeb to find these neglected gems for Analog Africa.
Wonderfully played, these tunes will put you in a tropical dance mood.
