FrontGood night my friends. Today i bring you a precious gem like only a great guy like Wilmer Skepsis could share with us: Electro cumbia Boliviana or Cumbia disco. This is hybrid between cumbia andina and new wave, techno, eurodance, high energy and synth pop. How they could do that, you ask. Because they introduced in their sound foreign instruments how give music a new color.

I don`t want to speak more than I really know, so I let you, mi friends, with Wilmer. He is the man behind this excellent comp. I really didn`t know about this group or this genre. So, like for you, this has been a real surprise for me. I only have wrote what I found in the web – that is less than nothing – so  this is what Wilmer put in their facebook:

Este compilado reúne a los grupos de “cumbia disco” del periodo 1989-95 (la época de oro) q experimentaron con el techno, eurodance, high energy, synth pop y otras sonoridades ochenteras, creando un original estilo cuya influencia puede rastrearse en el desarrollo ulterior de subgéneros como la cumbia sureña (para hablar del caso peruano) o la cumbia villera del norte argentino; el epicentro de esta movida fue Cochabamba con los emblemáticos grupos Los Ronisch y Maroyu seguidos por una oleada de grupos q surgieron siguiendo su estela, así Backtambién en Potosí, Sucre, Oruro, Santa Cruz y otras localidades del interior de Bolivia. Naturalmente, este movimiento tuvo su ocaso (hacia 1995) siendo hasta hoy casi olvidado o ninguneado por los cumbieros puristas y por los rockeros dogmatizados. Para mí es algo extraordinario lo q han hecho estos músicos bolivianos, una cosa de avanzada, de vanguardia, expresión auténtica del genio mestizo indoamericano. Aquí les dejo el link, disfrútenlo.

So, here you have the facts brothers. Another pearl for you, brothers. Enjoy. And be thankful with people like this guy who share whiteout ask nothing in change.

lucaHello you suckers, here i come again, once more with dirty punk and nasty garage. Today I bring you a classical (al list in my country the crazy Argentina) from my country and from my life too: Sumo. I don`t know if you have meet this band brother, if you are a curious boy maybe you have it but if you aren`t like that sure you don`t know about Sumo. So I going to speak – a few because if you write the band`s name in google you are going to find so many thing that you are going to give all your Sunday afternoon for read it – about this great and excellent band. They born in early eighties, when an Italian guy named Luca Prodan came to Argentina running away from heroin. He had passed his adolescent in England, under the influence of punk and rock steady music. Luca Prodan was a fanatic of Joy Division. In fact the last album of Sumo called “Joy Division”. Anyway, the thing is that when Prodan arrive to Argentina found a pop music and classical rock and roll in mainstream. So he decided form a punk and reggae band. With that idea meet Bocha Sokol (drums), Diego Arnedo (bass) and Germán Daffuncio (guitar) and started to play covers. But they didn`t have instruments, so Prodan spend his few many and bought stuff for the band. After that they traveled to fucking Buenos Aires and recruited Superman Troglio (drums) and Ricardo Mollo (guitars) and the classical formation of Sumo Borne.

Quikly they have the attention of musical companies because their proposed was different the others bands in scene. And, even now that have been pass more than twenty years since Luca Prodan passed away Sumo is a strange and unique gem in argentinian rock and roll history and they have a great place in this country because they make something new when music seems to be stopped in time. And why is different this band? Because they appear playing a particular and personal mix between punk (very raw and dirty) and reggae and revolutionary Argentinean music scene.

So friends I let you this beautiful record for you: Sumo – Live in la Falda. Enjoy friends like I’m going to do eating an asado with my friend. See you loosers!!!
