While it's a pretty 'troubled' country, Colombia produces some great music - funny how those often go together. Soundway, an amazing label that has put out a wealth of Afrobeat compilations, has recently started diving into Latin America, specifically Colombia (and other regions worldwide). They're also now releasing work by original artists such as Ondatropica, a Colombian supergroup headed by Will Holland aka Quantic; basically Soundway is the kill and you should support them if you can.
All songs here except for two are from various compilations on the label - my favorite is 'The Original Sound of Cumbia,' an excellent guide with recordings as old as 1948. This grip of tracks is cheap and is an invaluable tool for electronic music producers as well as it features TONS of open cumbia percussive loops for the production of that rhythm. Well worth the money for listening as well.
This mix has a lot of cumbia, but covers a lot of Colombian sound. Enjoy and peace!
