About ‘Cumbia’

The word ‘Cumbia’ came from the African word “Cumbé”, or party. It’s known as the queen of African rhythms & It has 3 cultural influences (African, Andean & Spanish).

The music originated around the 1820’s during Colombia’s struggle for independence as an expression of national resistance against Spain.

Both the African & Andean influences are obvious in ‘Cumbia’, the rhythms adopted from African slaves used by the Spanish & Andean flutes & poetry make up the core elements of the music .

Originally only performed with drums & claves it has since evolved to include; flutes, guitars, accordion, horns, brass & traditional drums & percussion.

Today it is very popular in Latin America & has even evolved into new forms mixed with Ska, Reggae, Hip Hop & Drum N Bass known as ‘Cumbia digital’ These elements & influences can be found in the music of ; Quanic, Ozomatli, DJ Spinna, Los Lobos & Los Kumbia Kings.

Even in Australia it will be featured at the 2010 Big Day Out Lilly Pad.

Sloppy Seconds is…

A re-edit label (Sloppy Seconds – get it?).  You can find me digitally on Juno for now.  I do have plans to press up vinyl sometime in the near future.  The material that I plan on using for the vinyl releases will be titles exclusive to the wax catalog (I have a secret stash saved specifically for this purpose).  I’ll let you all know when that happens.

A music resource website.  I’ve been collecting vinyl since the early/mid 80s and have amassed quite an amount of relatively obscure stuff and started the blog as a way to promote lesser known artists and their releases.  Because of the controversy surrounding mp3s I had originally intended to only post titles that are out of print, but I also realized that there are tons of new releases that are equally as amazing that weren’t being promoted very well.  The music selection there varies greatly and includes just about anything that moves me and/or  makes me laugh.  Here’s the addy.  Make yourselves at home.  Beer is in the fridge.

http://kennyconga.blogspot.com/

(For the record, I have received numerous emails stating that purchases of posted material were made due to promotion of said titles from the blog.)

And a DJ.  I’ve been DJing for quite some time now.  Most of you have never heard of me, which might have something to do with the severe lack of self promotion over the years – I never liked that part of the job, but I’ve come to the conclusion that the self promotion game needed to be stepped up if I wanted to continue to do this.
