Music of the Atlantic Coast Review

by David L. Mayers

Tota la Momposina sings the music of the Atlantic coast backed by a percussion group that includes a marimbula or bass finger-piano and sometimes a cane flute. These days, she is an international performer very popular in France, but this is the nearest thing available to Afro-Colombian roots music, and a pleasure. This and the collection album La Ceiba are non-vallenato releases for a change.
