Andres Landero- 16 Canciones (@ Purayaca)

If you've been digging on some classic cumbia lately, it'd be wise to get started with legendary Colombian accordionist Andres Landero, aka "King of the Cumbia". There's surprisingly little Landero bio material on the www, especially not en Ingles, but there is a fairly interesting thesis on him by Bardo Martinez, called Andres Landero and Resistance to the Commercializaton of Colombian Music posted at Listen Recovery*. For my money, I'd wager that Manu Chao has spent his solo career taking vocal cues directly from this guy.

*Also lifted that image above from Listen Recovery. Figured it'd make better artwork than what comes with the original cd.
