This collection of tracks delves into the golden years of 1960-76 and is hand picked from the enormous Fuentes record catalogue comprising various tropical music styles. Cumbia, Gaita, Fandango, Salsa and Champeta all feature in the selection from one of the worlds best Latin music archives.

“Blistering tracks that draw you deep into the jungle with their percussive mayhem [...] this is a scene to explore, and this album’s 28-page booklet of liner notes will provide plenty to ponder after your party”
