Las Clasicas de Sonido Pancho (mp3)

Sonido Pancho is one of the most important and most influential sonideros (sound systems) from Mexico City.

Cumbias Peñoneras – Shark DJ (mp3)

Cumbia Peñonera comes from Peñòn de los Baños, close from the main airport of Mexico, which is apparently, along with Tepito, the second birthplace of cumbia sonidera.

Porros, Cumbias y Gaitas (mp3)

Porros, Cumbias and Gaitas have in common to be traditional music from Colombia. As Cumbia is present all over the Spanish-speaking part of the Latin American continent, it seems that Porros and Gaitas are much more local. Porro is a festive afro-carribean style of Columbian music, with lots of cowbell (and as everyone knows, as […]

100% CDR, 100% Cumbia, 100% Tepito. If Hector Campos claims he is the King of records in Tepito (“El Rey de los discos en Tepito”) there might be a reason. As Tepito is one of the birthplaces of Cumbia Sonidera, being king of such a rich (and somewhat chaotic) kingdom must not be an easy […]
