Cumbia En Do Menor / Patricia (7")
No of Discs:
Slip Sleeve (CD or Vinyl)
Two stunning party tunes from Central-American artists Lito Barrientos y Su Orquesta (from El Salvador) and Los Robbins (Honduras) that will please the Latin music collectors as much as those into the Jamaican genres. Barrientos massive hit from 1965 'Cumbia en Do Menor' could have resulted of a dream meeting between Glenn Miller and The Skatalites at the Discos Fuentes studios in Colombia, recalling Jamaican sounds almost as much as big-band jazz while keeping all the right ingredients of its Latin essence. Los Robbins' 'Patricia' is an accomplished rock steady number recorded in Honduras under the influence of the Jamaican sounds that were making it into the country via the neighboring Belize. Almost impossible to find in its original issue, its is reissued here on a 7" single for the first time. A new nice addition to our 'Tropical 45s series'.
