Cumbia Is Taking Over
This month's issue of XLR8R features an article I wrote about the experimental cumbia scene in Buenos Aires. (Click the above image to see a hi-res jpeg of the article or just go here to download the entire issue as a pdf file.) Regular readers of this blog are not going to find a whole lot of new information, but maybe it will help spread the cumbia gospel on the other side of the equator.
In other cumbia-related news, the Refusenik mix I posted a couple days ago was also written up on the influential (and usually quite excellent) Discobelle blog.
Maybe I should start advising people to jump on the cumbia bandwagon now, before the inevitable backlash begins in about six months.
