In the mid-20th century, African music made its way to Colombia's vibrant port city of Barranquilla. After five years, in which seven expeditions were made to Barranquilla, Analog Africa is honoured to present "Diablos del Ritmo," an anthology of - and tribute to - the immense sound of 1970s Colombia. Thousands of records were collected, boiling down to a colourfully diverse selection of 32 tracks split between Afrobeat, Palenque Sounds, Tropical Funk, Terapia & psychedila rhythms on Part 1 and an array of danceable tropical rhythms of Puya, Porro, Gaita, Cumbiamba,, Chandéon on Part 2.
