Lucho Bermúdez- Colombia Tierra Querida
Cumbias, Porros, Gaitas, Boleros! Lucho Bermúdez was a heavyweight Colombian clarinetist and bandleader. His legendary Orquesta worked in hotels, clubs, festivals, radio- basically everywhere- playing nearly any folk or popular dance style one might've found in mid-20th century Colombia.
Guest post courtesy of my pal, Emma C:
"If you ever jammed out hard to Cumbia en Do Menor, you'll probably dig this stuff too. There's some quality ululation and wailing clarinet. This came from a friend of mine from the Colombian Chocó and I'll likely be asking him for some pacific marimba stuff soon."

*Looks like the mighty Global Groove posted some other vintage Lucho Bermúdez back in May. Get on it!
