Seems like there are a lot of interesting hybrid musics in Latin and South America. A lot of them are prefixed with Afro as well. A case in point is Afro-Peruvian music, which is incredible. I heard it for the first time on a compilation that the Rough Guide released. I believe they released a cumbia CD as well. I think they were pretty cheap, under ten dollars.

yeah Latin America is highly open to mixing. Loads of African influence, plus native, plus European in the blood. Surprising links to Asia too, and other oddities like the polka influence on a lot of Mexican stuff. Fertile grounds.

The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.

The purpose of life is to fight maturity.
