Double Gatefold LP Version (Part 1). In the mid-20th century, African music made its way to Colombia's vibrant port city of Barranquilla. After five years, in which seven expeditions were made to Barranquilla, Analog Africa is honoured to present "Diablos del Ritmo," an anthology of - and tribute to - the immense sound of 1970s Colombia. Thousands of records were collected, boiling down to a colourfully diverse selection of tracks. Volume one of the two double LPs features Afrobeat, Afrofunk, Psychedelia-inspired rhythms. The deep cuts of Analog Africa's 12th compilation will instantly transport any listener to Colombia's thriving Caribbean coast to indulge in the succulent belly of tropical music's untold historic tales.
