with reverberating guitars and mind bending special effects combining to create a heady psychedelic brew, this surprising collection spans the spectrum of psychedelic cumbia from the '60s pioneers to today's innovators and will appeal to fans of Carlos Santana, psych and cumbia.

Influenced by the western psychedelic culture of the late 1960s, Colombian cumbia was then reborn to make it relevant to the younger generation - Add into the mix the strong surf culture in coastal Peru and Mexico, and conditions were ripe for incredible experimentation. highlights include chicha libre's spectacular version of love's baroque-pop classic 'alone again or'!
