Thanks for all of these man! I'm especially looking forward to listening to Frente Cumbiero.

^ No hay problema.

I have plenty more, so I'll keep adding them to this thread. Here are some videos related to Frente Cumbiero...

Spoiler for YouTube Videos:


Here's a live video of Frente Cumbiero performing "Merecumbe" by Johnny Colon...


The members of Frente Cumbiero also have a couple of other bands they're in (Los Pirañas, and Meridian Brothers) which take cumbia pretty far outside of the realm of traditional cumbia...


Los Pirañas | Freim TV Sessions | S03 05


Meridian Brothers - Boiler Room - London - Live Set

Mario Galeano from Frente Cumbiero is also the co-founder (along with Will Holland of Quantic) of the collective known as "Ondatrópica"

I'll add this one to the list, since I just mentioned them. The debut album from "Ondatropica" the collaboration between Mario Galeano, from Frente Cumbiero, and English producer Will ‘Quantic’ Holland. Not specifically a cumbia album, as there are multiple styles on display throughout the album, but there is cumbia here to be sure. There is also a 3-LP + 1 7" set which has 29 tracks on it rather than the 19 tracks shown here on the YouTube video which is from the CD version of the album.

Here's the debut album from one of the great Peruvian cumbia groups, the originators of "jungle cumbia" Juaneco y su Combo...

I'm slowly checking these albums and I have to tell you I am fucking loving that Sonido Gallo Negro album. Weirdly enough, I feel like quite a few of the tracks would fit in very well on the Repo Man soundtrack. I'm listening to "El Ventarron" right now and it really makes me want to hop into a flying Chevy Malibu. This album is seriously like all the best aspects of exotica and surf rock rolled into a sweet cumbia package.

Here's another group from Peru which were mostly an instrumental, electric guitar-driven cumbia group and are credited with being the forerunners of the chicha sound.
Like the previously mentioned "Los Diablos Rojos" they have much in common with instrumental surf-rock groups like The Ventures.
This album is a recently released compilation of some of their more psychedelic tunes from 1968 to 1975 and while the band was primarily rooted in cumbia, this CD features them playing several different styles of music in addition to cumbia...

Here's one from "Chico Trujillo" from Chile. This is their fifth album, titled "Chico de Oro" (Golden Boy) featuring a more traditional cumbia sound with more accordion and horns rather than the surf guitar and farfisa organ which is so popular in chicha.

And speaking of traditional... here's a 5-piece band from Los Angeles that plays Colombian vallenato music (a traditional cumbia) using accordion, backed up with percussion and bass.
This is their sixth album...

Here's the debut EP from a 9-piece group from La Plata, Argentina, that has a style similar to Sonido Gallo Negro...
