ANTH: Columbia – Palenque Records Remixed (Dutty Artz)

Album Cover_PalenqueMusic derived from field recordings made by Lucas Silva (of Palenque Records) in San Basilio de Palenque in Columbia, a town founded by escaped slaves in 1602 that retains a strong African identity.  The popular Palenquero cultural music is called Champeta Criolla -a mix of African, Afro-Caribbean, & indigenous influences. The tracks on this CD resulted from a collaboration between Lucas Silva & New York producers Atropolis & Geko Jones. The result is not for ethnomusicologists, but these remixes rock!
