We are excited to share this LP compilation of the great Aurita Castillo, the young queen of Cumbia from the legendary Chambacu neighborhood. Little is known about Aurita other than her cutting some killer records for Discos Fuentes in Medellin in the 1960s. Her recordings are some of the heaviest and most perfect cumbias of the era – ripping electric and acoustic guitars, snapping thundering drums, dark clarinet melodies and Aurita’s amazing voice commanding the show. This is the first reissue of these songs outside of Latin America, and a long overdue celebration of the very talented Aurita Castillo and her band! 

  • Pressed on 160 gram vinyl 
  • Remastered by Tim Stollenwerk and  licensed from Discos Fuentes, Colombia
