Various Artists – Vintage Italia (Putumayo)

Italian songs from the 1950s, 60s, and a few newer tunes that were inspired by these traditions. Possibly a good soundtrack for an Italian dinner party.

ANTH: Latin – Latin Christmas (Putumayo)

Title says it all. Some decent tracks here. I think I’ve heard some of the other tracks while shopping at the mall.

ANTH: Africa – African Rumba (Putumayo)

In the decades after WW II, the influence of Latin rumba, mambo, & cha cha cha on African music was massive. Here this influence is celebrated with tracks from top African bands, sometimes working with some well-known Cuban collaborators. Nice music for Latin dancing.

ANTH: Latin – Vintage Latino (Putumayo)

An aptly named collection of mellow, romantic tunes from bygone times in Cuba, Mexico, and all around South America.
