Fascinating selection of contemporary rhythms from the contemporary scene in Barranquilla, Colombia released via Honest Jon's. Includes a full-size booklet detailing the fascinating history of this music, seamed into the strange, tentacular byways of hand-to-hand vinyl distribution, record collecting and musical connoisseurship, and the soundclash traditions of the region, suffused with the politics and culture of the Black Atlantic, stretching back to the 1950s.
