PALENQUE PALENQUE: Champeta Criolla & Afro Roots in Colombia 1975-91

Palanque Palenque! The latest release from Soundway is a hot one. They're doing a killer job exploring African influences on Colombia music, as of late. More info at the Soundway site. *Does that 2nd track "Pim Pom" sound like classic Fela, or what?

I've been listening to this pretty much non stop for the last couple of weeks. It's definitely worth getting. Also, there's a bit of an interview with Lucas Silva one of the guys behind the disc at Sounds and Colours
