This collection of songs, sketches and embryonic ideas is destined to end up as the third in Piper Street Sound's trilogy of albums dealing with Cumbia and Chicha, with the working title Towards the Fall Line in Cumbia. The first album was Chicha De La Piedmont and the second is Cumbia De La Piedmont (due for fall release on Boom One Records). Each album progresses thematically to mimic a drop in latitude and a gradual movement southward, as if traveling from the Piedmont of the Appalachian mountains, through Atlanta and then down towards middle Georgia, following the rivers across the coastal plain towards the Gulf of Mexico. A second trilogy of albums continuing this journey has been started dealing with the music of New Orleans, Cuba and Jamaica.
